VENTURA SUPERIOR
NO LONGER ACCEPTS FAX FILINGS
  
Effective March 15, 2018, Ventura Superior Court began an eDelivery program (this is not eFiling) replacing their acceptance of fax filing for case types - Civil, Small Claims, Family Law and Probate.
 
Of course, DDS Legal will continue to file over-the-counter as requested, and when eFiling is live you may eFile through the DDS Legal Certified eFiling Portal.
 
Until then, you may choose to use the new eDelivery program, but understand the new system has limits:
 
Not all documents can be filed this way.
Some documents will not receive a conformed copy.
 
For documents, not allowed:
 
See court's, General Order
 
You must sign up for eDelivery, through Journal Technology.
