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 Notice (name extension) should NOT be selected as the document type for Notice of Appeals. The correct document type to choose is called Appeal – Notice of Appeal/Cross Appeal Filed.
The court is aware these two document types are causing confusion since the Notice of Posting Jury Fees does not have a fee associated with it.
