Monterey County

Monterey County Clerk Policies


If you’re filing into Monterey County, here is a format of eFiled materials:


1.     All documents filed electronically must be in electronic text-searchable PDF (portable document format).

2.    Pagination.  Document pages must be consecutively numbered using only the Arabic numbering system (such as 1,2,3), beginning with the number 1 on the first page of the document.  When a document, transcript, or record is served in both paper format and electronic format, the pagination must be consistent for both versions.

3.    If a party or attorney elects to include hyperlinks in a filing, the hyperlink may be active and should be formatted to standard citation format as provided in California Rules of Court, rule 1.200.

4.    Filings that contain multiple documents must be linked together.
