PACER Registration

To obtain a PACER account, you must complete the online PACER Registration Form. For immediate access to court records, provide a credit card during registration. If you do not provide a credit card, an activation code will be sent by U.S. mail to the address you provided on the registration form. Please allow 7-10 business days for mail delivery. For security reasons, activation codes cannot be emailed, faxed, or given over the phone.

There is no registration fee. However, the Judicial Conference of the United States has established a fee for access to PACER. All registered agencies or individuals will be charged the fee. Access to PACER systems will generate a $0.10 per page charge. info
