  • File documents with the court 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (The ability to file documents with the court is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from any location with internet access, except during regularly scheduled maintenance hours)
  • Potential cost savings, including a reduction in production, photocopy, courier, and postage costs
  • A convenient, secure method to file documents and pay associated fees
  • The flexibility to file a document up to 11:59:59 p.m. in the time zone in which the court is located, on the date that the document is required to be filed
  • A reduction of the risk of paper files being misplaced or lost
Attorneys must register online to obtain a username and password, and complete free online training prior to using the electronic filing system.
