This service will allow you to initiate a case or file to an existing case electronically. Attorneys will register to E-File through AIS.
Non-attorney users who are employed by an attorney may request a Firm Financial Manager (FFM) Account. Once approved, the non-attorney FFM may access the E-Filing System but is not authorized to E-File documents.
Thank you for your participation in the use of our E-Filing system.
Motions for extension of time pursuant to § (c)(9)(A) of the Supreme Court’s April 3, 2020 Order re: Operation of the Trial Courts During the Coronavirus Emergency may be filed using new Action/Action Type “Motion/Extend Time Pursuant to Order dated 4/3/2020.” In accordance with the Order, filers will not be charged a filing or technology fee for these motions.
E-Filers should be advised that many county courthouses have temporarily restricted public access due to the COVID-19 virus. While filers may continue to E-file to these counties and staff is available for acceptance, please be aware that approvals/rejections of filings may be somewhat delayed.
Court Administration has the compiled information below regarding county courthouse operations. Please click here for detailed information.
The Note to Rule 12(b), SCRCP, states “[t]his important Rule 12(b)…eliminates the necessity of the awkward ‘special appearance to object to jurisdiction.’” The use of the electronic Notice of Appearance function in E-Filing connects the attorney to a party, which allows the attorney to E-File a document and ensures the attorney receives notice of future filings. This is functionally required in all contexts, including where an attorney seeks to appear to merely to contest jurisdiction. There is only one form of the Notice of Appearance in E-Filing.
