Did you know that the electronic filing (E-filing) of certain civil court documents is available (and sometimes mandatory) in counties and judicial districts all over California? Its true. Pursuant to amendments in the California Code of Civil Procedure section 1010.6, civil court documents can be filed easily and efficiently from your office. In Orange County Superior Courts it soon might be possible to file both Plaintiff Bonds and Defendant Bonds. Surety Bonds such as Injunction Bonds and Appeal bonds will be able be able to filed in minutes. More and more superior courts in counties around California are making E filing a reality.
How does this help court users? For one thing it means no trips to the courthouse specifically for filing of civil court documents such as insurance coverage claims and surety bonds. This saves time and money for both the user and the courts. In addition, E filing will make public documents more readily available for electronic searching; another time and money saving development.
Furthermore, the filing of civil court documents is done through secure and trusted third party vendors. These vendors include American Legal Net, Essential Publishers, One Legal, and Rapid Legal.
