Upgrade your PACER Account for NextGen CM/ECF

On February 1, 2020, the District of Utah will upgrade its CM/ECF system to NextGen CM/ECF (NextGen). This will require filers to take steps to prepare for NextGen in order to continue to electronically file.

NextGen simplifies electronic filing by combining your CM/ECF and PACER accounts into a single Central Sign-On account. Through the PACER website, filers will use one log-in and password to electronically file in all NextGen courts where they have permission to file. You will no longer need a separate CM/ECF account for each NextGen court. All Federal Courts are expected to eventually adopt NextGen.

What can I do to prepare now?

Before February 1, 2020, upgrade your PACER account at, if you have not already done so. Each filer must have his or her own PACER account. Firm (Shared Account) PACER accounts will not work with NexGen. Please note, PACER accounts created after August 11, 2014, are already upgraded accounts.
