NextGen Information

The United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia went live on the Next Generation of CM/ECF (NextGen CM/ECF) on Tuesday, October 13, 2020.  This change affects ALL registered CM/ECF users.

NextGen CM/ECF includes "Central Sign-On", which allows registered users to access all NextGen courts to which they already have access (Appellate, Bankruptcy, and District Courts) using only one PACER login and password.

New users can register for e-filing by following these step-by-step instructions.

ALL registered CM/ECF users must have their own individual upgraded PACER account.  PACER account credentials are used for logging in to the NextGen CM/ECF system.  Shared PACER accounts cannot be used after October 13, 2020.
