How to File a Document – Non-Attorneys
Mandatory electronic filing for attorneys in King County Superior Court started July 1, 2009 (see LGR30 ). Pro Se parties may choose to e-file but are not required to do so.
- In Person
- By Mail
- Electronically (E-file)
You can file all King County Superior Court documents in the Clerk’s Office. We have 2 locations (Kent and Seattle). If your document has a fee you will need to file it with the Cashiers. If your document does not have a fee you can either drop it in the rapid filing box or take it to the customer service counter for filing.
You can mail documents to be filed. If there is a filing fee please include the appropriate payment and make your envelope ATTN: Cashiers. If you would like you can include a self-addressed stamped envelope as well as a copy of your document(s) and we will conform them and mail it back to you along with your receipt (if applicable).
You can electronically file documents into any existing case as long as it was initiated on or after January 1, 2000. You can initiate cases electronically as well, through the e-filing application and pay your filing fee(s) online. Exceptions are listed in LGR 30. You can electronically submit working copies to judges and commissioners through the E-Filing application for a flat fee of $20.00 per submission.
