e-filing FAQ

Does the Court have E-Filing (Online Filing)?

Other than complex civil litigation cases (see Civil Rule 15), there is no e-filing yet at our Court. Complex civil cases use electronic filing on the separate, E-Filing website .

For other types of cases, the papers must be filed at an appropriate courthouse. The location is determined by the type of case you are filing and where parties are located. You may need to get legal help to learn more about where to file.

Some types of cases can use fax filing. See the Fax Filing FAQ for more information.

For general information on filing based on the type of case, see the FAQ on How can I find out how to file with the Court?
