The Utah Judicial Council's rule requiring attorneys to submit filings in civil cases electronically is now in effect. CJA 4-503. Electronic filing in probate cases is available and will be mandatory on July 1. Please note the following information about the eFiling system:
1. The place where court's seal and signature appear on orders electronically signed by the court has changed. They now appear in the top margin of the first page of the order.
2. We are aware that formatting issues have been appearing in some electronically signed orders. The new signature location will help resolve some of those issues. To further reduce formatting problems, we have posted updated formatting tips for you to use in preparing documents for the court's signature: go to the court's website at www.utcourts.gov/efiling and select “Formatting .RTF Documents Submitted for Court Signature.” If you need further assistance to format documents for eFiling, please contact your electronic filing service provider.
3. New video trainings have also been posted on the court's website at the above address (select “eFiling Video Tips for Attorneys”). Each video is about three minutes long and provides interactive training on the most frequently asked questions about eFiling. Please share this information with members of your staff who prepare your filings.
Thank you for your assistance in helping us to manage your electronic filings efficiently.
