The Notice of Electronic Filing (NEF) I received has a link to a document. Am I charged to view the document?


An NEF email containing a hyperlink to a filed document can be viewed the first time for free.  This one free view link expires after the first use or 15 calendar days, whichever occurs earlier.  To retain a free copy of the document for your records, print or save the document during this initial viewing period.

If you click the link after it has expired, you will need to enter your PACER login information, and you will be charged to view and print or copy the document.

Also, the NEF may include a case number link.  If you click on the case number link, it will display the Docket Report for the case. You must log into PACER to view the Docket Report, and you will be charged for access.
