When eFiling in California courts, fees are calculated based on the filing type and document types. Each court assigns fees to each document type and the total is calculated based on the selections you make while entering your eFiling information.

In order to ensure that you are being charged the correct fees, consider the document types carefully. Choose the best option based on the document type and the fees that are typically associated with filing your document into that case type.

On the Documents screen in the eFiling workflow, search for the document type that matches your eFiling. Once the list of document types appears, click Select to choose the document type that best matches your filing.

Finish uploading your document and continue through the eFiling process.

Once your eFiling has reached the court, the clerk will review the documents that you have selected and assess your fees based on the selections you have made while placing your order.
