Before using eFileMaine

  1. Watch the recording eFileMaine New Filer Portal Training (60 mins.) or if available, attend a live, online training session. A schedule of live sessions will be added to this web page when available.
  2. Review the system requirements to ensure your computer hardware, browser, and internet speed are compatible.
  3. Determine what type of account you need (law firm administrator or individual filer).

Law firm administrators must setup and register their law firm first, then add individual attorneys.  A firm administrator does not need to be an attorney. Firms may have more than one firm administrator.

eFileMaine users must register for an account and provide an email address to be used for eService, provide account payment details or an exemption from paying filing fees, and agree to Terms of Use.

eFiling, eService, and access to electronic documents are governed by the Rules of Electronic Court Systems (RECS).
