Representing Yourself in Court? Register to E-File

  • Access to a computer with an Internet connection and browser.
  • Documents to be filed must be in one of the following formats: Microsoft Word 97 (or higher), WordPerfect or Adobe PDF.

Filing Your Documents:

  • You will receive two e-mails from the portal regarding your filing: one e-mail when the filing is submitted and a second e-mail when the filing is accepted. If the filing is not accepted for any reason, it will be returned to you for correction. If this occurs, the portal will notify you via e-mail with the reason the document(s) is being returned to you, at which time you may log back into the portal to correct and resubmit. NOTE: If you e-file your documents, do not file the paper copy with the Clerk & Comptroller’s office.
