Notice: Update on Mandatory e-filing
August 26, 2009

  • With a few exceptions, all civil case types are now e-filable. Drug asset forfeitures; foreign civil judgments; foreign protective orders; habeas cases; and summary process and housing civil matters are not e-filable. Also, cases that include a prejudgment remedy and eminent domain case types (including state highway condemnation and redevelopment condemnation) cannot be initiated electronically, but subsequent motions, pleadings or documents can be filed electronically.
 

  • Beginning September 1, 2009, e-filing will be mandatory in all foreclosure matters. Attorneys and firms without an exclusion from electronic services requirements will be required to file electronically through e-filing as follows:

1.   Case initiation documents (for example, summons, complaint and marshal’s return) for foreclosure cases commenced on and after September 1, 2009; 

2.   Motions, pleadings or documents in newly initiated and existing e-filable foreclosure cases.  An existing e-filable case may be identified by its docket number. If the number that follows the year is a 5 or a 6, the case is e-filable (for example, HHD CV 09 5001234 or FBT CV 08 6001015).  If the number that follows the year is a 4, the case is not e-filable (for example, HHB CV 09 4000196).

  • Payment of all court fees in existing foreclosure cases and in foreclosure cases commenced on and after September 1, 2009 must be made electronically through e-filing.
     
  • Beginning December 5, 2009, e-filing of all civil case types will be mandatory for attorneys and firms without an exclusion from electronic services requirements, with the exception of the case types listed at the top of this page.
