  • ***eFiling in Georgia Courts. As of Jan. 1, 2019, all Georgia state and superior courts are operating with mandatory civil eFiling. The General Assembly passed SB 407 in March 2018, which created a basic statutory framework for mandatory civil eFiling. Under the new law (O.C.G.A. §§ 15-6-11 and §§ 15-7-5), all new civil actions filed by an attorney in state or superior court must be initiated electronically after 1/1/19.

Our court system uses PeachCourt for our efiling.  To go directly to their website, please click the link here.  PeachCourt
