NextGen is Here!

The U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico upgraded its CM/ECF system to the Next Generation of CM/ECF ("NextGen") on April 20, 2020. NextGen 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.

What is New for CM/ECF E-Filers in NextGen?

NextGen implements a new functionality called Central Sign-On or “CSO” that will allow attorneys and pro se parties with permission to electronically file ("E-Filers") to maintain one account across all NextGen courts (appellate, bankruptcy, and district). What this means is that E-Filers will be able to use one login and password to access all NextGen courts where they have permission to file, as well as to access PACER for all courts.

E-filers MUST do the following in order to continue to electronically file in NextGen:

  1. Obtain your own individual PACER account (click here to learn more) OR Upgrade your existing PACER account (click here to learn more).
  2. Know your current ECF Login and Password, make sure your email is up to date. Click here to Reset your current ECF Password.
  3. On or after April 20, 2020, your will need to link your PACER account with ECF. (Click here for information on linking your accounts).
