A new Attorney Participation agreement has been posted and needs to be submitted with the JEFIS registration form.

JEFIS is the Judiciary’s electronic filing and imaging system. It allows participating attorneys to file documents with the New Jersey courts electronically through the Internet. Implementation of electronic filing with the courts is being developed one docket type at at time. As electronic filing becomes available for different docket types, they will be added to the list below. Currently, JEFIS can only be used to file documents pertaining to the following case types:

  • Special Civil Part cases with DC docket numbers*
  • Foreclosure Actions

*Please note that electronic filing for DC JEFIS is mandatory for certain attorneys/law firms. Please click on JEFIS Information for Special Civil Part Case Filings below to review the Supreme Court Order.

JEFIS is designed to streamline court processes and further the creation of a paperless court in the State of New Jersey. Attorneys who participate in the JEFIS program gain additional benefits:

  • Reduced postal fees and paper expenditures related to filing court documents
  • Faster response time in processing documents by court staff
  • Free access to the Automated Case Management System—Public Access (ACMS-PA) application
  • Access to JEFIS electronic case jackets
  • Electronic access to Collateral accounts


The Superior Court Clerk’s Office serves as the administrator of the JEFIS registration process.
