There are several different types of accounts for which you may be eligible to register. A PACER
account provides read-only access and works in all federal appellate, district, and
bankruptcy courts. A PACER administrative account allows groups or firms to manage multiple
PACER accounts for billing purposes. In addition, electronic filing (e-filing) accounts for attorneys
and non-attorneys are offered. Attorneys may now register for admission to practice in federal courts as well.
In an effort to provide more efficient systems to the public, the Federal Judiciary will
implement a nationwide centralized attorney admissions and e-filing registration process in
all appellate, district, and bankruptcy courts over the next several years. If the court
you wish to practice in has
to the next generation Case Management/Electronic Case Files(CM/ECF) system, you may apply for
admissions and/or register for e-filing privileges through this site. If the court has not
upgraded, filing privileges are handled by each court individually.
If you have questions or need assistance, please contact the PACER Service Center at (800) 676-6856 between the hours of 8 AM and 6 PM CT Monday through Friday or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Otherwise, continue with this wizard to determine the type of account you need.
