Updating Your Information

You must FIRST file a Notice of Change of Address and Contact Information in ALL open cases pursuant to Local Rule 11.1(g)After filing the necessary documents, the attorney must then return to PACER and submit their address and contact information change.  Changes to address and contact information will NOT be processed unless the proper documents have been filed in ALL of the attorney’s open cases first.  Please note that filing a new case, and/or filing a notice of appearance, is not a mechanism for changing the information on file with the Clerk of Court.

If an attorney is no longer representing a party and/or the attorney is not terminated from a case, the attorney must FIRST file the necessary document in the case pursuant to Local Rule 11.1(d)(3).  After filing the necessary document, the attorney must then return to PACER and submit their address and contact information change. Changes to address and contact information will NOT be processed unless the proper documents have been filed in ALL of the attorney’s open cases first.

Changes to your contact information, primary email address and name must be updated through your PACER account after the proper documents have been filed in all open cases.  Updates to secondary email addresses must be made in CM/ECF NextGen.

For assistance with your PACER login, please contact PACER at 800-676-6856.

Pursuant to Local Rule 11.1(g) Responsibility to Maintain Current Contact Information: Each member of the Bar of the Southern District, any attorney appearing pro hac vice, and any party appearing pro se shall maintain current contact information with the Clerk of Court. Each attorney shall update contact information including e-mail address within seven (7) days of a change. The failure to comply shall not constitute grounds for relief from deadlines imposed by Rule or by the Court. All Court Orders and Notices will be deemed to be appropriately served if directed either electronically or by conventional mail consistent with information on file with the Clerk of Court.

Attorneys appearing pro hac vice must file a notice of change of mailing address or contact information through their local counsel, in each pending case, whenever such a change occurs (Administrative Order 2005-38).

If court notices sent via U.S. mail are returned as undeliverable TWICE in a case, notices will no longer be sent to that party until a current mailing address is provided.
