eFiling for San Mateo Civil case types begins in June

San Mateo county Pigeon Point

eFiling in San Mateo county continues to grow! Earlier this April, San Mateo County Superior Court introduced eFiling to Family Law. Now, on June 10, San Mateo is expanding its voluntary eFiling program to include Civil case types. San Mateo filers in Civil and Family are joining their colleagues in Probate, who have had the option to eFile since March, 2018.

There are several benefits to transitioning your legal team to eFiling during a voluntary period. You can utilize the convenience of a paperless workflow, file documents directly from your desktop, and take advantage of an extended deadline for same-day filing.

Voluntary eFiling also allows your firm the opportunity to learn the unique guidelines and features of an eFiling workflow at your own pace. At One Legal, we recommend you plan to prepare your team now before eFiling mandates.
