How do I connect to my state's electronic filing manager (EFM)?

Connecting your One Legal account to the court's back-end system

Some courts use an electronic filing manager (EFM) to manage their backend system. One of these, in particular, requires filers to connect their One Legal account to the EFM to help with proper tracking of cases, parties, and attorneys associated with cases. 

This is a one-time process that takes just a couple of minutes and permits access to all courts using that EFM.

Connecting your account

Log in to One Legal, and click the Account drop-down in the top right corner, then select My Account

Click on eFile registration and select the state into which you would like to connect.

If you are a new user:

If you have never eFiled into the particular county and case type before, then you will need to create a new account. Simply enter and confirm any password into the fields and click Create account

You will receive an email asking you to activate your new user account for eFiling. Click on the Activate Account link in that email to begin eFiling in your court.   

If you are an existing user:

If you have eFiled into the particular county and case type before, simply enter the email originally used to create your account with the EFM (either through One Legal or using another eFiling service provider) and enter and confirm your password. Click Connect.

Once you have created or connected your One Legal account to the court's EFM, your registration is complete and you can eFile into any court in that state which uses that backend system.

If you are not already connected, the system will prompt you to connect to the EFM as you start to place your first transaction into a county that requires it.
