Certificate of Good Standing

You are here

The Certificate of Good Standing verifies that an attorney is a member in good standing with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas. A fee is required for this certificate, and refunds are only authorized by court order, so please verify your status before requesting a certificate.

If you are an ECF user, you may request and pay for your certificate via the Request for Certificate of Good Standing function, found under Civil Events -> Other Filings. (You may request certificates for up to four additional attorneys during the transaction.) In most instances, we can email the certificate(s) to you the same day.

If you are not an ECF user, please register via PACER or send your written request (including your full name and bar number), payment, and a self-addressed stamped envelope to the clerk's office. Click here for more information regarding ECF Registration.
