Home » Direct Fax Filing Information
Documents must be filed at the courthouse where the case is pending (Reference Guide on Where to File). Parties may elect to directly fax file documents at the correct court location pursuant to California Rules of Court, Rule 2.304.
Parties electing to directly fax file documents have two options:
- Pay a fax registration fee of $125 for each fiscal year (ie. 7/1 - 6/30) to fax an unlimited number of pages. Please register online or complete the Direct Fax Filing Registration form (RI-MC001) to sign up for the fax-filing program.
- Pay $1.50 per page for each fax filing submitted to the court. The $1.50 per page option can be indicated on the Facsimile Transmission Cover Sheet (RI-MC005).
NOTE: If you are not an annual registered user, by default, the court will charge $1.50 per page to fax file.
Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express may be used to pay the $125 registration fee or the $1.50 per page for the fax-filing program.
A 'Facsimile Transmission Cover Sheet' must accompany each facsimile filing.
