The fact is that eFiling is rapidly becoming a reality in state courts through the US, including California’s superior courts. Right now in California, eFiling is available in 15 courts but during 2017 it’s very likely that more than half of all of the state’s county-level courts, including massive cities like Los Angeles, will have active eFiling programs.
It’s time to start getting prepared
Therefore, it’s likely that — even if your local court isn’t imminently moving to eFiling — you’ll have to file somewhere that does require electronic delivery of court documents sometime in the not too distant future.
To ensure that the process is as smooth and successful as possible it pays to get prepared for eFiling sooner rather than later. eFiling is a bit of a learning curve if your office is currently set up with physical delivery of documents to the court window as your main method of getting filings completed.
To help smooth the transition, we’ve collated some of our most useful resources in a free downloadable ebook: How to prepare your law firm for electronic court filing.
This ebook gathers together our experience of eFiling implementations across the state over the past decade and highlights the key things you need to get ready in advance.
In this book you’ll learn:
- What eFiling and eService are, how they work, and how they can benefit you and your firm
- What office tech (software and hardware) you need to prepare your eFilings successfully
- The best practices for training and learning the skills required for eFiling
- How fees are charged when eFiling
- What constitutes a “court friendly” filing
To avoid getting caught off-guard, it’s recommended that you begin preparing as soon as possible. This free resource will give you the information you need to get started.
