The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin will be closed on Monday September 1, 2014,
in observance of Labor Day.
On November 12, 2008, the Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin implemented Pay.gov, a secure, electronic payment system that allows CM/ECF users to pay for transactions on-line. Using Pay.gov is mandatory for CM/ECF users, as this court will no longer keep an individual's credit card information on hand.
Using Pay.gov is a straightforward task, much like buying a product from an on-line store. You will need your credit card at the end of a transaction or at the end of the day to settle your accounts. Please remember that payment is required for all transactions within a 24 hour period. If you do not make a payment, your access to CM/ECF will be temporarily disabled.
There are a number of resources to help you in the transition to Pay.gov. Please click here to find a Pay.gov Attorney/Trustee Manual. This is a brief, simple PDF document that you are welcome to read if you find making transactions on-line difficult, or if you having a problem paying for a particular transaction.
