Failing to follow California Rules of Court, rules 2.100 et seq., results in the Court rejecting your filing. Here are some typical reasons (but are not limited to) that the Court rejects a filing:

  • Multiple filing documents are submitted as a single Filing Document Name (i.e., the cover sheet should be a separate PDF)
  • Incorrect Filing Document Name is selected
  • Incorrect court location is selected
  • Incorrect case type is selected
  • Incorrect payment account option is selected (e.g., fee waiver)
  • Party’s name does not match the party’s name listed on the document for initial documents
  • Party’s address does not match the party’s address listed on the document for initial documents
  • Missing required documents
  • Missing required information
