Welcome to the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey. Courthouses are located in Newark, Trenton, and Camden.

NextGen CM/ECF

The United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey would like to thank you for your assistance in our transition from CM/ECF to NextGen. Your preparation and timely upgrade has helped to make this process as smooth as possible. We encourage you to reach out to our NextGen Help Desk (973-645-3930) if you need further assistance in upgrading to NextGen.

We would also like to recognize the following attorneys as some of the earliest adapters of NextGen:
Carrie Boyle - First overall to e-file in NextGen
Edward R. Grossi - First to open an Adversary Case in NextGen
Bolko G. Rokicki - First to open a Bankruptcy Case in NextGen

We are now live on NextGen CM/ECF. You must link your PACER account with your CM/ECF account in order to e-file.

Please do not register for a new e-filing account if you already have one with the court, you only need to register for an individual PACER account if you do not have one already in order to link it to your CM/ECF account.
