Administrative Order - Electronic Filing

The eSubmit program allows court customers to electronically deliver documents in appeals, family law, probate, juvenile, criminal and traffic cases to the court securely via the Internet.

Beginning January 1, 2022, eSubmit will no longer be available for unlimited civil, limited civil, unlawful detainers and small claims cases. Documents in civil case types can be submitted via eFiling through an electronic filing service provider (EFSP).

Documents submitted via eSubmit must be in non-editable Portable Document Format (PDF) and cannot exceed 50MB each. The program will request information required for processing and allow documents to be uploaded and transmitted to the selected court. The documents will be received by the selected court and processed electronically.

Important Considerations

Editable/fillable PDF forms must be converted to non-editable format (see eSubmit Instructions (pdf )).

Credit card payments cannot be made using Internet Explorer on Windows 7 or older.

There are no fees associated with filing a domestic violence or gun violence restraining order.
