Some FAQ about accounts:

Q: How long does it take to get a CM/ECF account?

A: Once you satisfy the three requirements above, your account will be e-mailed to you within one business day. If you need your account right away to file a document, please call us at 866-784-6273 (toll free) or 202-357-6402 (local) (between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. EST) and we will try to expedite the process.

Q: Can I use my CM/ECF account from another court?

A: No, each court maintains its own CM/ECF system and procedures. You must obtain a CM/ECF account for each court with which you will electronically file.

Q: I have an account but I forgot my password. What do I do?

A: Call us at 866-784-6273 (toll free) or 202-357-6402 (local) (between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. EST) and we will e-mail you a new password right away. We will only send passwords to the primary address on the account and we will never give passwords over the phone.

* Please note that you must obtain a PACER account for viewing reports and documents. A CM/ECF account will only allow you to file documents. The court does not manage PACER accounts. You must contact the PACER Service Center directly.
