Our website will be unavailable on Thursday, June 2 beginning at 7:00 a.m. until approximately 10:00 a.m. At 10:00 a.m., our new website will be up and running at the same web address, www.wieb.uscourts.gov. The new website will display the Judges' calendars two weeks out rather than one week, and we have a new "Calendar Lookup" feature where you can search the calendar by case number or by debtor's name. If you have bookmarked specific information from our current website, you will need to recreate those bookmarks sometime after next Thursday.

Chambers Procedures for Judge Hanan
To enhance the registration process for new electronic filers, the Bankruptcy Clerk's Office has added an online submission process. To register for an electronic filing account on this Court’s Electronic Case Filing System (CM-ECF), please click here.
The CM/ECF Training system provides functionality similar to the CM/ECF Live system. Filers are able to experience CM/ECF without affecting the status of cases already in the Live CM/ECF system. If you do not already have access to the training system or need assistance with your login, please contact our Help Desk at 414-290-2700.
