District Court E-filing is getting upgraded with the highly anticipated File and Serve roll-out beginning in April. The roll-out is scheduled to be completed by the end of May. The goal is to make this transition as smooth as possible. Once File and Serve is activated, the former system will continue to be available for approximately 30 days.
Further updates will be communicated as they develop. The court will hold training sessions at the Regional Justice Center and the Family Court campus. Law firms or those who are unable to make one of the sessions can make arrangements for one-on-one training. Details on how to request this training will be announced prior to April 17. A training video is also available at https://tylertech.egain.cloud/kb/nvh5/list/242400000011494

There are many advantages to File and Serve including: the Envelope Feature which enables the filer to bundle multiple filings (all must be same case number) into one envelope for just one $3.50 flat-fee. Filers can submit an Answer, Initial Appearance Fee Disclosure (IAFD) and Demand for Jury Trial in one envelope for a total of $3.50 thereby saving $7.00 on the cost of two documents (if filed separately).
The Issuing Summons feature enables the clerk to electronically issue Summons’ through the new site. Simply submit the Summons at the same time you submit the Complaint (using the envelope feature) and once the Clerk processes the Complaint and assigns a case number, the Summons can be issued. The Summons and Complaint will be returned to the filer ready to be served. These new features will cut steps and save the time previously required to present the Summons’ to the Clerk’s office for issuance after the case had been initiated and a case number assigned through electronic filing.
Defaults and Writs of Execution can also be submitted electronically for review and issuance saving a trip to the Clerk’s office.
Template Functionality enables users to easily set up reusable templates for common new case initiation as well as subsequent filings. This feature can be used to save time and ensure accurate filings.
The E-Check Feature enables payment with checking account information for only $1 per filing/envelope.
Important Dates: April 17 File and Serve will be available for new filings.
May 15 The legacy E-Filing system will be turned to read only and all new filings must be done by File and Serve.
