Civil eFiling

Superior Court Clerks in Georgia are no strangers to accepting documents submitted via electronic means. The passage of Senate Bill 407 during the 2018 Legislative Session, which contains language mandating electronic filing in civil cases effective January 1, 2019, is just the latest development in an ongoing story in which clerks have played a key role since the beginning.


  • Plats – mandatory as of January 2017
  • Real Estate – 159 participating counties
  • Child Support – 123 participating counties
  • UCC – 108 participating counties
  • Civil – 130 participating counties
  • Criminal – could be next!

Superior Court Clerks in 130 of Georgia’s 159 counties already accept electronic filing into civil cases in some capacity (and 52 of 70 state courts). As of January 1st, 2019, electronic filing into civil cases will be mandatory in all superior and state courts in Georgia.
