 Superior Court Documents 

Electronic filing is mandatory for attorneys, unless LGR30 provides otherwise.  Non-attorneys are encouraged to e-file but are not required to do so.

New An updated version of the EPVC application was deployed on May 8, 2015.

The King County Clerk’s Office has made improvements to the application to enable users to e-file and submit documents to Ex Parte via the Clerk (EPVC) in one process flow.   EPVC users may now check a box to designate documents being submitted for the court’s review that should also be e-filed.  It is important for users to check this box for all documents being submitted which have not been previously filed into the court file.

Another change is that Proposed Orders are to be submitted in MS Word format (.doc or .docx file format).  This change facilitates electronic filing of the orders by the court.

Users will notice a number of modifications to the application’s screen layout. For guidance, view the Ex Parte via the Clerk step-by-step process guide.

If you have questions, please contact eServices (email) or phone 206-477-3000.
