All pleadings, including briefs, can be E-Filed, except pleadings or documents under court seal.
Exhibits to be offered at trial or a motion hearing will not be submitted through the E-Filing system. These should be mailed or hand-delivered to the court.
E-Service is available through the NWCC E-Filing system. The E-Filing System will E-Serve all opposing attorneys registered for E-Filing. Self-represented litigants must be separately served (i.e. mail, fax, email).
Appeals can be E-Filed. The associated fees will also be submitted through an ACH transaction.
The NWCC E-Filing system currently does not support E-Notice. Orders, notices, correspondence, etc. from the Office of the Clerk of the Court will continue to be sent through the United States Postal Service.
The following instructions for “flattening” PDF files have been provided by the Nebraska Supreme Court’s Attorney Services Division:
How to flatten PDF forms
When using a PDF fillable form or adding an electronic signature to a PDF document, the user must lock or “flatten” the PDF document after completion. Doing this ensures the document can be viewed on all devices and it prevents other users from manipulating or making changes to the information.
If a document is created in Word and information is redacted in Word, it may be possible to view the redacted information after the document has been converted to a PDF. Therefore, only make redactions when the document is a PDF.
Below are the steps to flatten a PDF document:
Complete the fillable form / add electronic signature;
Right-click on the document and choose Print or click on File in the upper-left corner and choose Print;
Choose PDF Printer and click OK;
Choose the location where you would like the flattened document saved; and
Email E-Filing Customer Service (see email image below) with questions about flattening a PDF form or call 800-747-8177.
