File on an Existing Case with a Safeguarded Party
As of October 1, 2022, the e-Filing System will include a new tag in the Case History that notes there is a Safeguarded Party on an EXISTING CASE.
Green Filing recommends that before filing in this existing case, you pull up the Case Summary in our system and click the refresh link on the upper right of that screen. This ensures our e-filing system has the latest information from the Court regarding your case.
Once a safeguarded party exists in the case, attorneys will not include their protected information in the filed document(s).
