NextGen CM/ECF Information

The United States District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma will be upgrading its CM/ECF software to the next generation of CM/ECF (NextGen CM/ECF) in the coming weeks. NextGen CM/ECF is the culmination of a multi-year project headed by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts to provide for the current and future filing and case management needs of all CM/ECF users. The NextGen CM/ECF system will provide users with several benefits, including the ability to maintain a single login and password for electronic filing and PACER access in all federal courts (bankruptcy, district and appellate). This central sign-on feature allows access to all courts in which you have permission to file. In order to prepare for NextGen CM/ECF, you must complete a few preliminary steps. Follow the steps in the section below to prepare your account for the transition to NextGen. NOTE: You will continue to use your court-issued CM/ECF logins and passwords to electronically file in CM/ECF courts who have not completed the transition to NextGen CM/ECF. To see a list of those courts currently using NextGen CM/ECF, click here. Eventually, NextGen CM/ECF will be instituted in all federal courts (bankruptcy, district, and appellate).
