Westchester County Chosen to Pilot E-Filing of Matrimonial Actions

 

WHITE PLAINS, NY: In recognition of the current success of electronic filing in Westchester County, the Office of Court Administration has recently expanded the e-filing program. “Over the last two years, electronic filing has proven not only convenient for our customers, but also reliable and efficient,” shared Westchester County Clerk Timothy C. Idoni. “In addition, electronic filing benefits all county taxpayers as it eliminates the cost of storing physical records and reduces the cost of retrieving records.” The New York State Courts Electronic Filing System, commonly referred to as “NYSCEF”, allows court papers to be both filed and served from the convenience of the filer’s home or office. In addition to being an electronic filing system, NYSCEF provides online access to case files from any location with an internet connection.

 

“E-filing also helps to make our county a little greener,” shared Clerk Idoni whose office is the first in New York State to implement electronic filing of matrimonial actions. “Electronic filing eliminates the need for attorneys or their support staff to travel to our White Plains office and also significantly reduces reliance on paper, making the filing process more environmentally responsible.”

 

Currently all contract, commercial, foreclosure, tax certiorari and tort actions must be started electronically in the Westchester Supreme Court. “We encourage our matrimonial filers to sign up for a free training class by visiting WestchesterClerk.com, where upcoming classes are posted”, concluded Clerk Idoni. Both attorneys and litigants representing themselves in matrimonial actions can choose whether or not to electronically file and can be assisted in the Office of the Westchester County Clerk.
