|CM/ECF Help Desk:||1-800-355-8498|
The CM/ECF system is typically available for filing 24 hours, seven days per week. In the event help desk support is needed and to avoid any unscheduled system downtime required for system maintenance, attorneys needing to meet filing deadlines should attempt to file during normal business hours (Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.).
