Wish your state had more eFiling options?

Too many jurisdictions rely on a single option for electronic court filing. Let your courts hear from you about opening up to eFiling providers.

Get involved in the future of eFiling

Although court-maintained web portals provide basic eFiling functionality, they continue to fall short of addressing all the needs and requirements of each court clerk, attorney, and filer.

Practitioner feedback lets courts know what your priorities are and what changes would benefit you, your firm, and. your clients. You and your colleagues can advocate for changes such as expanding available filing options by approving third-party eFiling Service Providers.

How it works

Have you heard of the Filing Fairness Project?

The Filing Fairness Project is an ambitious, multi-jurisdictional effort to simplify court filing processes and improve access to and the administration of justice by leveraging readily available technology.

Frequently asked questions

An EFSP is a provider that has been certified by the court’s eFiling system, an Electronic Filing Manager(EFM), and approved by the court to provide a solution for filers to prepare and submit documents. Courts may approve any number of EFSPs.

EFSPs tailor their solution to the needs of different categories of attorneys and other filers. InfoTrack serves law firms, legal aid organizations as well as self-represented litigants.

A system for receiving, reviewing and accepting documents submitted electronically to the court.

EFSPs do not replace the court’s EFM. EFSPs integrate with the EFM and adhere to certification standards and court policy for eFiling. Filings from EFSPs are indistinguishable from those initiated via the court’s web portal.

In addition to eFiling services, EFSPs provide court filers with optional services including:

  • physical and electronic service of process
  • delivery of courtesy copies and physical filings
  • integrated eFiling within legal practice management systems
    • document syncing with the court record
    • automatic accounting of court fees
  • streamline billing with extended payment terms
  • enhanced reporting

There is no cost to the court to permit EFSPs. EFSPs will collect and transmit court fees as required. Filers may purchase optional services from the EFSP.

EFSPs support the filers that chose to use their services. InfoTrack’s users receive 24/7 account setup and filing assistance.

California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, New York, Utah and Texas currently support EFSPs.
