AACER brings clarity to complexity

Access critical data · Reduce risk · Improve workflow · Reduce cost · Gain insights

Like the Federal Judiciary’s case management/electronic case files (CM/ECF) system, AACER gives access to electronic court records from every court in the country. But, AACER’s bankruptcy case search and monitoring platform is so much more. We allow lenders, servicers, investors, law firms and others to easily and efficiently identify debtors in bankruptcy, monitor bankruptcy cases and events, and search across and within cases. Users can also leverage our case monitoring work queues, proprietary algorithms and crowd-sourced cost reduction model to realize savings and best manage their portfolios, all through one easy-to-use, reliable, on-demand connection point. And, our expert loan review services and filing automation further help our clients boost their performance and bottom line.

Bankruptcy Case Search

All courts, all documents, all the time

AACER was designed with simplicity in mind. With AACER’s online, easy-to-use interface and central connection point to all bankruptcy courts in the United States, you have one convenient place to search across and within bankruptcy cases, including claims registers, to find whatever you need for case monitoring, generating insights, managing your case or portfolio or just staying informed, whenever you need it. And the age of the case doesn’t matter — if it’s in the courts’ databases, AACER gives you access.

Easy, automated advanced bankruptcy case search

Automatically conduct bankruptcy case search across all active electronic court records for specific events, including case closing, abandonment matters, amended schedules, notice of final cure, order confirming plan, plan amendments before confirmation, plan amendments after confirmation, first meeting of creditors, disclosure statements, dismissal events, discharge, notice of assets, conversion matters and more. Filter results by numerous criteria with one click. Receive bankruptcy case search updates automatically. The days of manual, inconvenient CM/ECF based searching are over.

Crowd-sourced cost savings

Once an electronic court record has been retrieved, it is available for viewing to everyone in your company at no additional cost. Further savings are achieved as court records accessed by other AACER customers are available to all AACER users at a reduced cost. So, the more people that use AACER’s bankruptcy case search and monitoring, the less it costs everyone.



Tracking one consumer or company across the U.S. bankruptcy court system on the chance they file a bankruptcy case is time-consuming and complicated. Tracking thousands only adds to the complexity. AACER is used daily industry-wide to identify new bankruptcy filings across the U.S. bankruptcy court system with the highest precision available, including confidence scoring, case coversheet data parsing, links for easy docket access and file formatting for easy consumption of data into users’ internal systems. Additionally, AACER Notification includes SCRA/DOD automated search and return of receipt of service or proof of search, as well as reporting of case discharges, dismissals, closing or case conversions with associated transaction dates. With AACER, you’ll receive notification and up-to-date electronic court filing data automatically in the event your debtor files a bankruptcy case. With AACER, you can fully and easily comply with all collection and related bankruptcy stay requirements.
