eFiling and eFiling News

This information specifically applies to attorneys who are filing documents on behalf of their client OR pro se parties who have chosen to eFile.

eFiling is now mandatory for the following case types: CF (Criminal Felony), CM (Criminal Misdemeanor), CT (Criminal Traffic), TR (Traffic), FO (Forfeiture), CV (Civil), SC (Small Claims), FJ (Foreign Judgment), TJ (Transcript of Foreign Judgment), CL (Construction Lien), CO (Condominium Lien), HL (Hospital Lien), OL (Other Lien), FA (Family), PA (Paternity), PR (Probate), GN (Guardianship), ME (Civil Commitment), JO (Juvenile Civil Law and Ordinance Violations), JM (Juvenile Civil Commitment), JG (Juvenile Guardianship), JC (Juvenile CHIPS), JV (Juvenile Delinquency), TP (Termination of Parental Rights) and AD (Adoption).

Documents requiring the signature of a court official must include a blank 3″ top margin on the first page of the document and 1/2″ top margin on all subsequent pages. Court software will place the court official’s electronic signature in the 3″ margin on the first page, along with the file stamp and a header containing the case number, document number, filed date, and pagination.

The eFiling system will permit filings received by 11:59 pm Monday through Friday to be stamped as filed on that day.

To request the conversion of a case to an eFiled case, please contact the Clerk of Courts office. The conversion may take several days to complete depending on the location of the physical file, its age and number of documents that will be scanned into the case prior to conversion.
