Top 10 resources for eFiling in Los Angeles County

bookshelf and tv
eFiling in Los Angeles court is fast approaching. We've gathered the top 10 resources you'll need to get your firm prepared and your filers confident in the new processes.

It’s true, eFiling in Los Angeles is finally, nearly here!

The Los Angeles Superior Court (LASC) has been working hard for more than a year to create a seamless integration with the county’s new eFiling system. Recently, the court announced new dates for the implementation of eFiling in more case types, starting with Limited Civil on November 13, 2018.

Probate case types first began eFiling in May 2017, but other case types were scheduled out in order to ensure a robust system that could handle electronic filings sufficient to the largest legal market in the world.

If you’ve been eFiling in other counties, the good news is that many of the policies and procedures will be similar to those in Orange, San Diego, and surrounding counties.

If you’re brand new to the electronic court filing world then buckle up! There’s a lot to learn (and a lot that will be the same as paper filing) but we have everything you need to become eFiling savvy.
