Judiciary Electronic Filing System (JEFIS): JEFIS Registration
Registration and participation in the JEFIS program is free of charge. However, the standard fees for filing court documents still apply. To register for JEFIS, the attorney must: 1) establish a Judiciary Account charge system (JACS) account, 2) read the Attorney Participation Agreement, and 3) submit a completed Attorney Participation Certification and Registration Form.
JACS/ Collateral Account
Prior to registering for JEFIS, an attorney must first establish a charge account with the Judiciary’s Office of Banking and Cash Management. The required filing fees will automatically be deducted from the account when documents are filed electronically with the court. If a Judiciary charge account is already established, skip this section and move on to the JEFIS Attorney Participation Agreement.
Opening a JACS collateral Account is simple and straightforward. You can do it quickly with an easily obtained Judiciary User ID. Need more information? Please click here to learn about our JACS self-service application.
JEFIS Attorney Participation Agreement
The Attorney Participation Agreement contains a detailed explanation of the electronic filing program and instructions on how to register with the Superior Court Clerk’s Office. Please read the Attorney Participation Agreement carefully as it also sets forth the responsibilities of the Judiciary and the attorneys who participate in the program.
The Attorney Participation Certification and Registration Form
The Attorney Participation Certification and Registration Form must be completed by each participating attorney. Please note that forms submitted without an attorney collateral account or incomplete registration forms will be returned.
