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 a release date of March 8, 2021. 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.
