NextGen CM/ECF Deployment Information

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Alabama (ALMB) will begin its transition to NextGen CM/ECF (NextGen) in April 2020, with an anticipated release date in September 2020. This site will keep you informed on the deployment status and steps you will need to take as a user.

1.  How will the upgrade to NextGen impact me?
NextGen is more seamlessly integrated into PACER and the two systems will be linked by a single-sign-on. Your PACER account and password will be your entry into the ALMB CM/ECF and other courts that have transitioned to NextGen.

2.  How do I prepare to use my PACER account for single-sign-on?
Between now and the time we deploy NextGen, please take a few minutes to upgrade your PACER account. Directions on how to upgrade can be found here.

3.  I am a filing agent, what about me?
Filing Agents will need to have their own PACER accounts as well. Please visit PACER to register for an account.

4.  I have my upgraded account, now what?
When ALMB deploys NextGen, you will be told to link your PACER account to your existing ALMB CM/ECF account. From that point forward, you will logon to PACER to file documents with the court.
