Updating Your Information

Updates to an attorney’s contact information, email address or name are received by the Court via the attorney’s PACER account. Please note that submitted changes are not immediate, and there is a possibility that the Court may not accept your change.

Changes to your contact information, primary email address and name must be updated through your PACER account.  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. A party appearing pro se shall conventionally file a Notice of Current Address with updated contact information 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.

To Update Your Name:

Name changes must be made through your PACER account and emailed to Attorney Admissions. In order for the Clerk’s Office to process a name change request, the request must be accompanied by a copy of the order from the Supreme Court of Florida changing your name. In the absence of such an order, a name change request will not be processed and an attorney must continue to file all documents under the name listed on the roll of attorneys of the Bar of the Southern District of Florida. Further, if the Supreme Court of Florida order is not submitted, Attorney Admissions may be unable to verify that an attorney is listed on the roll of attorneys. (See 3F of the Administrative Procedures)
