eFiling in Georgia Courts

As of Jan. 1, 2019, all Georgia state and superior courts are operating with mandatory civil eFiling. The General Assembly passed SB 407 in March 2018, which created a basic statutory framework for mandatory civil eFiling. Under the new law (O.C.G.A. §§ 15-6-11 and §§ 15-7-5), all new civil actions filed by an attorney in state or superior court must be initiated electronically after Jan. 1, 2019. Some courts, particularly those in the metro-Atlanta area, have required electronic filing for some time. Others have begun mandatory eFiling by court rule or standing order in the last few months. All 159 counties will be ready to receive electronic filings by Jan. 1 through their preferred electronic filing service provider. Two eFiling providers are presently used throughout Georgia: Odyssey (eFileGA) and PeachCourt.

This chart provides a reference of Georgia courts by judicial circuit and their selected eFiling provider. In the vast majority of counties with both a state and superior court, both courts have opted to use the same eFiling provider. There are a few exceptions, which are indicated below. Please note that a few Georgia courts allow attorneys to file using both eFileGA and PeachCourt. 

This chart will be periodically updated as courts change and/or add eFiling providers.
