  • Software to both read and write PDF documents

To file documents into the CM/ECF system, you will also need:

  • Local court-assigned account/login and password
  • An e-mail account to receive electronic notices through CM/ECF
  • Word processing software
  • A document scanner may be necessary to create document images in PDF format that are not created via your word processing software, such as exhibits or other supporting documents
