How do I obtain a certificate of good standing?
A Certificate of Good Standing verifies that an attorney is a member in good standing with the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. A fee of $18 is required for this certificate.

If you are a CM/ECF authorized user, you must request and pay for your certificate by logging into CM/ECF. Locate the Request for Certificate of Good Standing function, found under Civil Events > Other Filings. You must be prepared with the attorney's bar number, a credit card for the fee, and an email address to send the certificate to. In most instances, the certificate will be emailed, in PDF format, no later than the following business day.

If you are not an authorized CM/ECF user, you will need to register by filling out the CM/ECF Registration Form, located on the CM/ECF page to become a registered user. Once registered, you can then follow the instructions above for requesting a Certificate of Good Standing.
