New User Registration

Beginning March 1, 2021, the Eastern District of Wisconsin's Bankruptcy Court will be fully integrated in the Next Generation of CM/ECF. One of the benefits of this integration is the Central Sign-On module, which will allow users the ability to access our filing system using credentials received through PACER. Please see the instructions below for registering for PACER and/or filing access to our district.

Attorney Registration
Creditor/Limited Filer Registration
Financial Management Course Provider Registration
Pro Hac Vice Registration Please review the Pro Hac Vice guidance on our website
Deactivation Request Please note that this must be handled by the individual requesting deactivation, through their individual PACER account

Training Database:

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.
