eCourtesy Submission Service is an online delivery method (web application) for sending extra copies of filed and served documents to the Judge. You must file original documents with the Clerk of Court for docketing and placement in the court file. The eCourtesy application does not schedule. It is simply a delivery to the Judge by email instead of by hand-delivery or U.S. mail.
Effective October 20, 2014, the Probate Division will begin the use of eCourtesy, only for Proposed Orders.
Probate Division proposed orders, except the below, must be sent to the judge electronically through eCourtesy:
- Proposed Orders brought in person to Ex Parte Calendar or brought personally to case manager during Case Manager hours or placed in Overtown Drop Box on 8th floor
- Appointing a Commissioner (because the original is needed). Continue to deliver to the clerk at DCC
- Proposed Orders for the Opening of Testate Estates (because the original will is needed). Continue to deliver to the clerk at DCC
- Bond (because the original bond is needed) Continue to deliver to the clerk at DCC.
Remember, use only one delivery method for any one proposed order, do NOT send duplicate proposed orders. i.e. do not use the Probate Overtown Village Drop Box on the 8th floor and eCourtesy for the same proposed order.
