e-Filing in the Justice of the Peace Court


The Justice of the Peace Court has implemented a new policy regarding e-filing. Policy Directive 08-232 sets forth the criteria establishing who is required to e-file. The JP Court has also established a list of reasons that a filing may be rejected by the Court. Review the rejected reason list prior to submitting your filing to avoid delays in the acceptance of your filing. The Order amending Rule 79.1, allows the Justice of the Peace Court to implement e-filing procedures. If you fall under the requirements for e-filing set forth in the policy directive, you must first attend a free e-filing training class, offered every month in each County by the Judicial Information Center (JIC). Click here to view the Court's training sessions and register for a class.

When e-filing, electronic payment methods will require that you either use a credit card or a Court Account Application.
