NextGen Information

The United States District Court for the District of Delaware will be upgrading its CM/ECF software to the Next Generation (NextGen) of CM/ECF in the upcoming months. The Court will go live with NextGen on May 4, 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.  The NextGen system will provide users with several benefits, including the ability to maintain a single login and password for electronic filing and PACER access in all federal courts (Bankruptcy, District and Appellate).  This central sign-on feature allows access to all courts in which you have permission to file.

In order to prepare for NextGen, you must complete a few preliminary steps.

Follow the steps in the section below to prepare your account for the transition to NextGen.

Note: You will continue to use your CM/ECF login and password to electronically file in CM/ECF courts which have not completed the transition to NextGen.  To see a list of those courts currently using NextGen CM/ECF, click here.  Eventually, NextGen CM/ECF will be instituted in all federal courts (bankruptcy, district, and appellate).
