Beginning March 18, 2019, all represented parties in all California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and Civil Writ petition cases are required to file all documents through Electronic Filing (E-File).
Family Law cases, Probate cases, and Habeas’ Corpus petition cases are not required to E-File documents at this time.
Self-represented litigants are not required to E-File documents but are encouraged to do so.
An attorney may request to be excused from the E-File requirement by showing undue hardship or significant prejudice by filing and serving a Request for Exemption from Mandatory Electronic Filing and Service (Judicial Council Form EFS-007) with a Proposed Order (Judicial Council Form EFS-008).
Until a Request for Exemption from Mandatory Electronic Filing is ruled on, an attorney is allowed to file documents in paper form.
