What's New for NextGen CM/ECF Users

On April 30, 2018, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Iowa upgraded the Case Management/Electronic Case Filing System (CM/ECF) to the Next Generation of CM/ECF (NextGen). NextGen allows you to maintain a single login and password for PACER access and e-filing in all NextGen federal courts in which you have permission to e-file. 

The first time you log in to NextGen CM/ECF you will have to link your individual PACER account with your CM/ECF account.
