eFiling Coming to North Carolina Courts: Training Dates Announced for Attorneys

Training sessions will be offered both virtually and in person for File and Serve in September. Attorneys may register now.

Article contents

As part of North Carolina’s eCourts initiative, the N.C. Administrative Office of the Courts (NCAOC) will be introducing a new eFiling system, known as File & Serve, that will allow attorneys statewide for the first time ever to submit documents and case filings online.

This new capability will launch later this year in four pilot counties: Harnett, Johnston, Lee, and Wake. While attorneys in these four counties will be required to use File & Serve as of the go-live date, attorneys in other counties wishing to file cases in the four pilot counties, will also be required to do so via File & Serve.

File & Serve Training for Attorneys

In anticipation of File & Serve, the NCAOC has scheduled training sessions for attorneys statewide. These training sessions will be offered both virtually and in person, by File & Serve experts. On demand video training will also be available soon. For attorneys not in one of the four pilot counties, this training is still important, as File & Serve will be going live in your county over the next few months.

The File & Serve training sessions are scheduled as follows:

Virtual

  • Tuesday, September 6 – 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, September 8 – 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
