E-filing

    Electronic filing was established over 5 years ago but went completely active in all counties in the court level titled the Special Civil Part(suit amount from $1 to 15,000) within the last year. All counties use it however it is not required for pro ses and while they want attorneys to get on the system it is only required for the large filing firms(about 15). After a year it may be mandatory for all attorneys filing in the Special Civil Part.
