Leave the space at the top right corner of your filing blank. That area is where the Clerk’s “filed in office” stamp will be placed.
Please make sure that all signatures are dark enough for scanners to pick up and all print is legible.
Don’t use color paper.
When filing new cases please make sure to always place the complaint/petition as the first document, scan each original document (IE: acknowledgement, worksheet, agreement, etc.) separately, and to include a disclosure statement for judge assignment purposes.
Any exhibits and/or attachments should be labeled and attached to the document that it supports, not filed separately.
If you are filing a motion it is still your responsibility to notify the assigned judge. Do not submit orders (signed or unsigned) electronically. Send your proposed order along with a stamp filed copy of the motion directly to the Judge’s Office.
Please try to avoid waiting to file time sensitive documents until the end of your deadline. If your filing is rejected and you miss a deadline, you will be required to seek relief from the Judge that your case is assigned.
Do not submit any documents related to scheduling/canceling a court date. This includes but not limited to Rule NISI, Notice of Hearings, or letters to remove from the calendar.
Transcripts and deposition are not being accepted electronically at this point.
New cases submitted electronically after 4:30pm will not be accepted until the following business day.

Just as if you were doing a traditional filing, if you have a document for multiple case numbers, you will need to do a filing under each case.
Every document filed should have the case style and number on it.

If you file a pleading electronically you DO NOT need to provide the Clerk’s Office with the original.
At this time you must request subpoenas either via mail or in person with the Clerk’s Office.
