Clarendon County E-Filing Starts December 9, 2015

by Kathleen Barnes in Practice Pointers, Pre-Trial

Starting December 9, 2015, Clarendon County will host the first e-filing pilot program for the Court of Common Pleas.  As of December 9, all filings in civil cases, commenced or pending, in Clarendon County must be electronically filed.  This does not apply to a pro se litigant.

In January, I wrote about an e-filing system in the works for South Carolina state courts that will operate somewhat like the federal ECF system.  Attorneys are required to use their AIS login for e-filing.  On November 2, the South Carolina Judicial Department plans to post the E-Filing Portal at  The Portal will including training and reference materials, the E-Filing Policies and Guidelines, and FAQs.
