NextGen CM/ECF XML Case Opening and Docketing Information
The XML Case Opening module allows more data to be captured through an uploaded
XML file and streamlines the data entry process for attorneys.
This information is intended for bankruptcy petition preparation software
vendors to open a bankruptcy case in NextGen CM/ECF, following the guidelines
for XML submission of the bankruptcy petition and relevant documents, as
defined in the Information Exchange Package Documentation (IEPD). Vendor
software should be updated to communicate with NextGen CM/ECF web services and
submit XML data, but also continue providing the PDF, which is the official
record in the case. When a case has been opened with XML, the post-petition
filing of missing or amended schedules, statements and/or other relevant forms
should be filed with XML.
