Electronic Filing tips and FAQs
When a document, pleading, or case is submitted through the eFiling portal, some of the reasons that a submission may be returned are:
- No signature on document
- Wrong case number or style
- Document is unreadable
- Document is incomplete or incorrect
- No judgment for garnishment request
- Missing or insufficient fees
Any declined submission will specifically state why it was returned.
Payment options for filing fees
The Greene County Courts will accept filing fees through three commonly used options for all eFiled cases. EFiling submissions will be rejected if no payment is made for cases that require a fee.
- Credit or debit card
- Electronic check
- Manual business check/cashiers check
Greene County Courts will not be utilizing the online option of a county debit account.
Options one and two would be applied through the State eFiling system and incur a small convenience fee to a third party vendor.
Option 3 does not require a convenience fee to be paid. To use option 3, the attorney would need to select the "Fee Waived" option in the eFiling process. Then in the special text box include the check number for the corresponding check and amount that will be sent to the Circuit Clerk's office to cover the applicable filing fee.
When preparing the check to be sent in, it needs to include the style of the case and the date that the eFiling was submitted. A three business day grace period will apply to allow time to match payments with submitted cases before a submitted eFiling is rejected. No case will be processed until payment has been received by the Clerk's office (unless no filing fee is required).
If the United States postal service is being used to deliver the check(s), attorneys are encourage to mail their check(s) at least one or two days prior to submitting the corresponding new case. Please be sure to include contact information in the event that any question would arise concerning payment of the filing fee.
