The Case information is where you will select the location, the category and case type. Read below to learn how to fill out each field on the Case Information page. Boxes or fields outlined in RED are required. After you fill in all required fields in a section, the red boxes will disappear, and a blue Save Changes button will activate on the lower right side of that section.
- Location: The court where your case will be filed.
- Category: The general type of case you are filing. Some examples are Civil, Family, and Probate. After you pick a Category, you will see a list of Case Types within that Category.
- Case Type: The specific type of case you are filing. If you can't find the case type you need, change the Category (or Location) to see other available case types.
NOTE: If you don't know which location, category, or case type to select, please contact the court you are filing with for clarification.
NOTE: Some courts may offer additional input fields or dropdown menus, such as Procedures/Remedies or Damage Amount (as seen below). Only fields highlighted in red are required fields; you may progress without filling them out. If you have questions regarding what information should be selected in these optional fields or what these optional fields refer to, please consult with the clerks at the court you are filing in for further assistance.
Click the Save Changes button after you complete all the required fields in the section. You will then move down to the Party Information section. Click here to learn about the next required section, Party Information.
