When submitting a new case with a CCP 1033 or B&P 6322 code, please note that you must also submit a _Business & Professions Code 6322.1 (c)(1)_ filing. This reduces the filing fee for the transaction.
The General Order Re Mandatory Electronic Filing for Civil is posted on the Court’s website at www.lacourt.org. The Court suggests that litigants read the Order.
The initial fee for the jury demand can be paid via efiling by selecting the “Notice of Posting of Jury Fees” document type during the efiling process.
Certified copies may be requested from the Court’s records unit by mail or in person. If submitted by mail, include a pre-paid method of return, such as a self- addressed stamped envelope. In the future, the Court will be certifying documents electronically. The Government Code allows all the institutions, including banks, to accept electronically certified […]
The filer may submit a document “conditionally under seal” by selecting that Filing Document Name pending a ruling by the Court pursuant to California Rules of Court rules 2.550-2.551. The document will be sealed pending a ruling by the Court.
The filer may not establish a document’s security level. In other words, a document submitted as “confidential” by the filer will only become confidential pursuant to legal authority or if that determination is made by the Court.
Select Ex Parte for the document type when e-Filing. This allows the court to expedite that filing.
The Court does not electronically serve other parties on behalf of another party. You will need to Create a Serve Only filing in our system to e-serve a party or parties.
Once a judicial officer reviews and signs a proposed order, our system will email that copy to the efiler, and it will also appear in the document section of the accepted filing which is accessed from the Filing Status screen.
