Any document accepted in the e-Filing system stamped as Electronically Received—orders or any other document that requires a Judge or Clerk’s signature—is tentatively approved upon further review by a judicial officer or court clerk.

Since this subsequent review varies from court to court, filers will want to reach out to that specific court with the Envelope Number for reference to advise on any accepted documents that are stamped Electronically Received or do not have signed copies.

Some courts require the filer enter and select themselves as a Service Contact to enable them to provide an emailed copy of the final file-stamped document.

See below for instructions for specific courts:

Alameda Superior Court Civil

The Alameda Superior Court currently processes signed documents (orders, judgments, etc…) on CIVIL matters in one of two ways.

  1. Electronically: If the judge signs the order electronically, the court then returns the signed copy to our application. We then distribute that to the filer.
  2. In Paper: If the judge chooses to print and sign the order in paper, then the court is unable to return a signed copy to our application. They will then distribute the signed order outside the e-filing system themselves via US mail or email.
