E-Filing with the Prothonotary's Office
The Montgomery County Prothonotary Office has developed an electronic case filing system (e-filing) allowing attorneys and parties to electronically file civil documents and receive a response regarding the status of their filing(s).
Electronic filing allows the filer to send documents 24/7 from any location with Internet access up until 11:59 p.m. and still meet a filing deadline. The system is not mandatory. Pleadings and other legal papers can still be filed in the traditional manner by delivery to the courthouse during normal business hours.
An emergency petition should be filed in person at the Norristown office. They should not be e-filed or submitted to the Willow Grove Annex.

Note: The Case Records Public Access Policy of the Unified Judicial System of Pennsylvania requires filers to safeguard confidential information using a Confidential Information Form.
