Electronic Filing may only be performed using an authorized eFiling Service Provider (EFSP). Visit http://www.odysseyefileca.com/service-providers.htm for a list of available EFSPs. As each EFSP is an independent vendor, instructions for use of each site must be obtained from the corresponding provider. Please be aware that each EFSP will also establish their own fees and rules for use. Some EFSPs may provide their services free of charge, while others may charge a per-filing or monthly flat rate fee. Some may also offer premium services that others do not. It is recommended that parties investigate the services provided by several EFSPs to determine which best meets their needs.
The above fees will be waived for any party filing under an approved Fee Waiver or as a fee-exempt Government entity. Any usage fees charged directly by the EFSPs are outside the Court's control and cannot be waived by the Court.
Pursuant to California Rule of Court 2.259(c), documents may be electronically transmitted to the court at any time of the day. Acceptance of documents for filing shall be deemed to occur on the date the document was submitted to the Court.
