What are the eFiling deadlines in California?

For purposes of electronic filing of documents, pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure, § 1010.6(b)(3), any document received electronically by the court between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59:59 p.m. on a court day shall be deemed filed on that court day. 

Any document that is received electronically on a non court day shall be deemed filed on the next court day. This provision concerns only the method and effective date of filing; any document that is electronically filed must satisfy all other legal filing deadlines and requirements. This rule does not affect the timing requirements for any documents that must be filed by a set time on the due date.

These deadlines are only applicable to electronic filings; court filings physically delivered to a courthouse have a separate schedule of deadlines.

One Legal recommends that you place your filing by at least 11:45 p.m. to ensure that you meet the court's deadline.
