If you find that the Los Angeles Probate court rejects your filing without a reason (typically within a minute of submission), that means that the court’s software has an issue with one or more of your documents.
There are instances where you may not be able to e-file your document due to errors generated by the court’s e-filing manager software, or as a result of either court case data validation issues, or issues with the court’s e-filing manager software configuration.
When you e-file a Notice of Appeal, the e-filing system does not assess the appeal fees.
The court requests that filers choose the document type of Appeal – Notice of Appeal/Cross Appeal Filed for Notice of Appeals.
One of the limitations of the new e-filing system is the inability to add a third party that is not listed in the Filed By drop down.
In the Los Angeles Civil e-Filing system, if the filer enters a Court Reservation System (CRS) number in the Court Reservation Number field in Section 3 of the filing in our system, the court will NOT access any unpaid fees.
We were seeing filings rejected for not including the $20 order fee, when a first appearance fee was also due.
There was a problem with the Compton location rejecting new case filings with Request to Waive Fees when no Order was attached.
The Los Angeles Superior Court has delayed the new mandatory e-filing date for complex cases.
