Welcome to the Western District of Wisconsin

 

On April 25, 2022, the Western District of Wisconsin upgraded its electronic filing system to NextGen CM/ECF.  NextGen access is based on your PACER account credentials - the same login and password that you use to file in other NextGen courts. This feature is known as "Central Sign-On."

However, before you can use NextGen, you must take certain steps to upgrade your PACER account and link your PACER account to your existing ECF account. Please click here for more information, including instructions to upgrade and link your PACER account.
