Hearing Notices with Missing Information

Some Civil and Probate Division hearing notices do not include dates, times, and locations. If your notice is blank, please check Portal for your hearing information and contact EOCommunications [at] We’re in the process of resolving this issue, and apologize for the inconvenience.

Document Links in E-Notifications

Some links in Odyssey email notifications are not working. If you come across a broken link, report the issue to technical support. Thank you for your patience while we resolve this issue.


A new eFiling administrative order for the Civil, Probate, and Tax Divisions was issued on October 31. It describes:

  • Who must eFile, and who is exempt.
  • Which orders it supersedes.
  • Which other eFiling orders are still in effect.

See Order 22-30 here.
