If a filing is still Pending, and the filing clerk has not begun their review of it, then the user may cancel the filing.
Note: Before canceling a filing, be aware that if the user cancels it, and then refiles it on a date OTHER than the original filing date, the court issues the re-submitted filing a NEW submission date, and NOT the date of the original, cancelled filing.
- From the Dashboard, click Filing Status from the left menu.
- Click the Filing Id of the pending filing.
- Scroll to section 2, and check to make sure the status column still shows Sent. If the status column in section 2 shows Review Processing then the filing clerk has begun their review of the envelope. The filing is now in a state that a filer can not cancel it.
- If the status column still shows “Sent”, click the Cancel Filing link on the upper right.
Los Angeles Civil Court Submissions
Unfortunately, in the Los Angeles Civil courts, once a filer electronically submits the transaction, neither the filer nor the Electronic Filing Service Provider may cancel, edit, or add documents to the envelope. Please refer to #39 and #40 of the Los Angeles Civil FAQS
