The New York State Court System recently introduced electronic filing and service through the New York State Courts Electronic Filing System (“NYSCEF”) in Erie County Surrogate's Court. Erie County is a pilot venue for e-filing in Surrogate's Court and NYSCEF is available in probate or administration proceedings, miscellaneous proceedings related thereto, and such other proceedings as the court permits.

E-filing provides the following benefits to attorneys:

•   Documents can be filed in court or served 24/7 from anywhere in the world.

•   Court fees can be paid online by credit card at any time.

•   The electronic case file is accessible at any time from anywhere, both to attorneys and self-represented parties in the case.

•   The system is easy to learn and use.

•   There are no fees to use the system other than the normal filing fees.

•   Documents can be printed from the file at no charge.

•   The system provides instantaneous e-mail notice to participating e-filers when the court issues and files a decree, order, decision or judgment in a case.

•   Commonly-used hardware and software are all that is required.

Attorneys and self-represented litigants must register as NYSCEF users and obtain a secure password. The simple process for doing so is explained in this program.
