What type of cases can I e-file?

Except for the types of cases and documents listed in SCLCR 30, most all types of cases may be initially filed through File & Serve. You may e-file into any case once it has been created and you may e-file any document using File & Serve, except the documents listed in SCLCR 30, and applications for fee waivers and deferrals. Additionally, proposed orders and Ex-Parte-via-the-Clerk documents filed through the e-filing will not be presented to the bench for signature; they will be indexed in the case as filed. We hope to have e-filing capability for Ex-Parte-via-the-Clerk soon.
