Electronic Filing – Training and Registration

CM/ECF filing requires a login and password which is available to attorneys and creditors (limited access). Requests for new logins can take up to 2 business days. If you have an emergency filing, you can file it at the Clerk's office in either division.

Attorney Account – Admitted to Maryland U.S.  District Court – Training Required

If you have an Active bar status with the Maryland U.S. District Court, you must still take online training unless you have an active CM/ECF login with another Bankruptcy Court.

NOT admitted? Visit the Maryland U.S. District Court’s website.

Attorney Account - Admitted to the Maryland U.S. District Court and Active CM/ECF Account From Another Bankruptcy Court - Training Waived

Attorney Account – Pro Hac Vice  – Training Required

Attorney Account – Pro Hac Vice  – Training Waived

If there is an order in a case allowing you to file Pro Hac Vice, and you do not have an Active bar status with the Maryland U.S. District Court, but you do have an active CM/ECF login with another Bankruptcy Court, you do not have to take online training.

Limited Creditor Account

This login will allow you to request notice, file proof of claims, withdraw claims, object to claims, assign claims and file reaffirmation agreements. 

If you only need to file a proof of claim, please use our Electronic Proof of Claim (EPOC) filing option for which no login is required.

Non-Filing User Account

This login allows access to CM/ECF for the purpose of receiving email notifications of case activity. This designation is for use by pro se debtors, debtors represented by attorneys, attorneys not admitted to practice in Maryland, and other Non-Filing Users. Non-Filing users cannot file documents electronically.

Filing Agents

A trustee or attorney may create and link several ‘Filing Agents’ to their user account so that when the agent files on behalf of the trustee/attorney, the docket text shows the trustee’s/attorney’s name as the filer. Please click here for more information.

Switching Law Firms

If you are an attorney switching law firms, you should keep your existing CM/ECF account. Please contact the Court to discuss the specific procedures for this process, rather than requesting a new CM/ECF account.
