Uploading Multiple Documents. You must attach all related documents at the time of filing for one submission. You will not be able to add additional documents to your filing after it is submitted. The maximum file size for each document is 35 MB.

Court Stamped Documents. Documents are affixed with the date and time once they are accepted by the court. If the documents you submitted are not listed under "Court Stamped Documents," please contact the court you submitted your filing to.

Submitted Documents. Documents submitted by 11:59 p.m. will receive a filed date for the same day.

Confirm the Status of Your Filing. You can view your submitted filings by selecting the tile "Filings You Have Submitted" on the "Home" screen.

Filings that are not successfully submitted will be listed in the “Filings You Have Not Submitted” tile. These filings will be removed from the system after 72 hours. Once the filings have been removed, you will need to restart the filing process. You can also delete these filings by selecting the three dots (ellipsis) at the end of the row.

You can view your submitted documents by going to "Filings You Have Submitted" and selecting "Open" next to your filing. You can also request access to see your case information in eCourts.
