New eCourt Website!
On August 28, 2015 a new eFiling website was implemented for users of the OJD eFiling (Odyssey eFile & Serve) system. There are several important things to know about this transition. The complete press release is available here.
Why the Change
The new website (OJD eFiling HTML 5) will allow users to file their cases and documents without having to install Silverlight, a browser plugin required by the old system. You may ask yourself, so what? The change was made to accommodate Google Chrome users. Chrome stopped supporting Silverlight on September 1. Without the transition, Chrome users would be unable to eFile. (Or be required to user another browser.)
Where is the New eCourt Website?
You can find the new “OJD eFiling HTML5” website here. The new site is compatible with all browsers: Chrome, Firefox, IE, and Safari if they are up to date. If you haven’t already done so, be sure to upgrade your browser to the latest version.
Can I Still eFile Using the Old System?
Yes – during a “several month” transition period the old website will still work. You can find links to both the new and old sites on the OJD eFiling page.
Answers to FAQ from the Oregon Judicial Department
Do I Need a New Account for the New Website?
No. Both versions of OJD eFiling use the same login and contain all firm information (such as users, attorneys, and payment accounts), and will continue once the transition is complete.
Should I Start Using OJD eFiling HTML5 Right Away?
You can, but you don’t have to. Anyone can use the new system starting August 28, 2015, but it was specifically built to allow Google Chrome and Safari users to eFile without Silverlight. OJD eFiling HTML 5 also supports Internet Explorer and Firefox.
Will I Still Receive Notifications about my Filings?
Yes. The system will continue to notify you when filings are submitted, accepted or returned for correction.
While eFiling through the new system follows the same process, OJD eFiling HTML 5 uses an entirely new interface, featuring a new dashboard, new icons, and a single filing page (you won’t have to move between Case Information, Parties, and Filing Details any more.) To see the three major differences between the two systems, refer to the OJD press release, page 3.
