When you file any documents after the initiate complaint or petition, you have the obligation to notify opposing counsel (“service”). Whether you eFile or file paper documents, you still have this responsibility.
During the eFiling process, you can identify people to receive eService. As soon as the clerk accepts your filing, PeachCourt will send an email notification to each person you identify. The notification will include a description of your filing and a link to download a PDF of each document you eFiled.
eService when eFiling is NOT Mandatory:
When you are permitted, but not required, to eFile, you are permitted, but not required, to use eService to provide notification of filing.
eService when eFiling IS Mandatory:
When you are required to eFile, either by statute or judicial order, you are required to use eService to notify attorneys. In general, if the other party is not represented by an attorney, you are not required to use eService. Please check with the court in question to make sure you are aware of the prevailing rules.
Acquiescence to eService:
Any person, attorney or otherwise, who has registered as a PeachCourt user has agreed to receive notice of filing via PeachCourt eService.
When you use PeachCourt eService, you must make sure all necessary recipients are added to the service list. Please don’t assume that the necessary recipients will be added automagically.
