On the right side, click on the folder icon to File into the Case.
At the Documents Tab, click on Browse or drag files to upload documents. The uploaded documents will appear listed above the Browse button. When all relevant documents are uploaded, click on Case Information or Skip To Filings.
At the Filings tab, click on the Filing Type box. The options of EFile, EFile And Serve, and Serve will appear in the drop down menu.
EFile will only send your filings to the court. It will not serve your filings on the other parties on the case. You would have to serve the parties on your own.
EFile And Serve will send your filings to the court and also serve them electronically on any service contacts you select in the Service Contacts section.
Serve will not send your documents to the court but will serve them electronically on any service contacts you select in the Service Contacts section.
In the Filing Type box, select either EFileAndServe or Serve. Select the Filing Code(if EFileAndServe is selected). Click the Add Documents button for the Lead Document or Service Document(only appears if Serve is selected). Take action on any required red boxes in the Filing Section. Click Service at the lower right hand corner to continue.
Next section is the Service tab. The Service section will show all the parties who have elected to have their email available to be electronically served on the case. If you don't see an email under the party then the party has yet to add their email to case.
Check the emails that you want to serve. Uncheck to not serve the service contact. Click the Fees button on the lower right hand corner to continue.
If no emails have been added to the case, your state's eFiling website might have the option to Add Service Contact From Public List option at the top of the screen.
*Please Note: You should NOT add opposing sides as contacts to a case unless you are adding them from the Public List. If they are not on the Public List you will need to serve them through traditional methods. The Public list and Add New option vary by state. See What is the Public List? (Service Contacts)
Once the email contacts are checked to Serve, click on Fees.
Click all required fields in the Fees section. Click on Summary to continue.
