Santa Clara County eFiling for Civil cases is coming soon

Hello Santa Clara County!

Legal professionals in Santa Clara County have already been electronically filing court documents in several case types over the last couple of years. Effective February 13, 2018, it will become mandatory to eFile documents for General Civil cases, as well.

While some courts choose to introduce eFiling with a short permissive phase, Santa Clara courts have mandated the practice from the beginning. Many filers will have had cause to eFile in surrounding counties or in other case types.
