Here’s a list of Hardware and Software requirements for using our e-filing app.
Access to a personal computer with Internet browsing capability is the only hardware requirement. We recommend a modern Windows based personal computer (PC) or Apple computer.
E-filing does not require a scanner. However filers may find that they need one to scan documents for the purpose of filing. Whether a client or process server signs an affidavit (or a hard-copy paper exhibit that’s attached to a pleading); scanning document swill be the only means to digitize it for inclusion with the filing. We recommend scanning all documents at 300dpi and in grey-scale/black and white whenever possible to keep the file sizes small.
While filers may create a pleading with light weight applications like Notepad, WordPad, Apple Pages or Microsoft Works; it’s recommended to use a more sophisticated document generation software like Microsoft Word or Corel WordPerfect. When you file a document to the Court, they require the filer to upload a PDF version of that document. Newer versions of Word and WordPerfect offer a simple Save As utility to facilitate that conversion. If you use an earlier version of that software there are several free PDF conversion tools available. See our knowledge based article on PDF conversion to learn more.
You will need a web browser fully connected to the Internet. Modern versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera among others are all acceptable..
Note: The web browser plugin, Silverlight, is not a requirement for the purpose of e-filing.
