E-Filing Instructions for Attorneys

Attorneys paying online with a credit card must set up a separate Financial Administrator account. Attorneys can still pay at the counter; however, please note that filings will not be accepted and time stamped until payment is received.

Create an Attorney Account 


  1. Access the E-Filing System
  2. Read and accept the User Agreement
  3. Select User Role: Attorney (or Attorney with Municipality if ever filing on behalf of Municipality)
  4. Select a company or add a new company. Please check the list and pick your company name if it appears in the dropdown menu. If you do not see your company, create it with the "new company" button. If your company has multiple locations, please contact our office so that we may set it up
  5. Once you select or create your company name you will be prompted to fill out profile information and create a username and password. When completed, click submit. When submitted, your account request will be processed by the Prothonotary’s office. You will receive an email when your account has been approved. Be sure to keep track of your username and password.
  6. Once approved, please set up a "Financial Administrator Account" so that you can link your attorney account to a wallet later in the process. You may file documents that do not require a filing fee without a wallet, but if your filing requires a fee, you cannot file and pay for it unless you are linked to a wallet.

Attorney Payment Options

 
There are two options to make payments for filings:
  1. Create a Financial Administrator account and link your Attorney account with a card (see instructions below). Discover, Mastercard and Visa are the only acceptable forms of payment for civil online e-filings.
  2. Pay in person at the Prothonotary's Office. If you chose this option, you must select "Deferment-Pay at the Prothonotary's Office" when processing your E-filing. We accept cash, check or money order. Make checks payable to Prothonotary of Chester County.  In landlord/tenant cases, we only accept cash, money order or certified funds for payments to be escrowed.

NOTE: Filings will not be accepted and time-stamped until payment is received.
