About E-Filing Portal
The eFiling portal website provides eFiling and eRecording capability to users with a single statewide login. In the Supreme Court, use of the eFiling Portal became mandatory on April 1, 2013. Read the Order. You also can Pay Fees using the Portal.
General Instructions via court order are available. Use of the application will require minimal changes in the way attorneys and parties conduct business with the court. These changes include:
- Attorneys must submit briefs and petitions through the eFiling website rather than through mail or e-mail.
- Attorneys must submit briefs and petitions in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF), in Microsoft Word 97 or higher format, or in WordPerfect format.
- Attorneys must submit, in addition to their briefs and petitions, any appendices.
To request eFiling support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (850) 577-4609.
