Effective April 1, 2016 , the court entered the mandatory phase of electronic filing of legal documents to the court (e-filing) for attorneys. Self-represented litigants are encouraged to electronically file with the court but are not mandated.

An electronic filing service provider (EFSP) provides an online service to help you file your documents, and acts as the intermediary between you and the Odyssey eFileCA system. Each EFSP offers a variety of additional services and you should evaluate which provider meets your filing needs. Once you register with a service provider, you may not need to re-register should you choose to use another provider. Some providers allow you to log in with your existing username and password.
Currently, there are a number of EFSPs working to become certified with eFileCA and we expect the number of certified EFSPs to increase in the coming months. Certified EFSPs are listed below:
