Please Note
  1. A document sent through the Electronic Document Delivery System (EDDS) with a request for filing should be treated as "filed" only upon receipt of notice from the court clerk or County Clerk (or upon publication of notice on a County Clerk web page) that the document has been accepted for filing.
  2. Documents sent via EDDS do not constitute service upon any other party. Documents accepted for filing through EDDS must be served on other parties by electronic means or by mail.
  3. An unrepresented party can use EDDS to send documents to the court, after notifying the court and other parties that they wish to use this method. If EDDS is used, they must serve all such documents on other parties by mail, email, or other electronic means.
  4. EDDS should NOT be used for the delivery of emergency applications except in a Family Court that has been authorized to receive such applications via EDDS, or in a Court where the Judge directs the use of EDDS for that purpose. For more information on filing such applications please contact the court directly. To find contact information for a court go to https://www.nycourts.gov/courts/
