Here’s a list of Hardware and Software requirements for using our e-filing app.

Hardware Requirements

Personal Computer: The only hardware requirement for e-filing is access to a personal computer with the capability of accessing and browsing the Internet. We recommend a modern Windows based personal computer (PC) or Apple computer.

Scanner: E-filing does not require a scanner, however you may find that you will have a need to scan documents for the purpose of filing. Whether it be an affidavit signed by your client or a process server, or a hard copy paper exhibit that you’d like to attach to a pleading, scanning that document will be your 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.

Software Requirements

Word Processor: While you can create a pleading with light weight applications like Notepad, WordPad, Apple Pages or Microsoft Works, we do recommend more sophisticated document generation software like Microsoft Word or Corel WordPerfect. When you file a document, you are required to upload a PDF version of that document to the Court, and 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.

Web Browser: 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.
