Judiciary Electronic Document Submission (JEDS)

What is JEDS?

The Judiciary Electronic Document Submission (JEDS) system is a website that facilitates the submission of documents electronically to the New Jersey Courts. Users can use this system for the submission of documents related to new or existing cases. The system maintains a list of all documents submitted by the user.

The JEDS system is intended for self-represented litigants who need to submit a document to the court. Attorneys may also use JEDS for anything that cannot be filed in eCourts. If you are an attorney with the ability to file in eCourts, you should continue to do so; JEDS is for individuals who do not have the ability to file through eCourts.

If you need assistance with what to submit, where to submit something new, or about a previous submission, contact the county ombudsman at https://njcourts.gov/public/ombuds.html?lang=eng.

If you need technical assistance with the JEDS system, please send an email to JEDSSupport.Mailbox@njcourts.gov.
