Electronic Case Filing (ECF) Account

The Colorado Bankruptcy Court offers several types of electronic filing accounts. Please read carefully to determine the best option. All e-filing accounts are created and maintained by PACER.

Colorado no longer requires e-filers to complete training and practice filings to obtain an account. The Court reserves the right to suspend e-filing privileges for attorneys if it determines further training is necessary.
