Family Law Efile CA

Odyssey® eFileCA allows users to easily open court cases and e-file documents to a number of California courts anytime and from anywhere — 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. E-filing court documents significantly streamlines the case filing process and provides benefits to both the filer and the court.

Beginning December 4, 2017, Orange County Family Law Division will open e-filing to all parties on a permissive (optional) basis. Effective January 1, 2018, represented parties will be mandated to electronically file most documents. Self-represented litigants are not mandated to efile documents; however, they may choose to do so, if desired.
