Electronic Filing:

Civil Cases

As of August 29, 2016, the Superior Court requires electronic filing ("e-filing") in civil case types, this includes civil, family (except Department of Child Support Services), probate, LPS, appellate (except felony appellate filings) and dependency cases types. 

Criminal Cases

Effective March 6, 2017, the Superior Court uses permissive e-filing of trial documents only. E-filing of trial documents will become mandatory starting Monday, July 3, 2017. It is expected that more criminal documents will be accepted through e-filing by January 2, 2018.
