Electronic Lodgment

The Department of the Attorney General’s web-based eLodgment service enables lawyers and government agencies to lodge a sub-set of documents to the Supreme Court of Western Australia, the State Administrative Tribunal, the District Court of Western Australia and the Magistrates Court of Western Australia.

Registered users can electronically lodge up to 15 main documents in the Supreme Court jurisdiction; the s.13 (7) Commercial Tenancy application in the State Administrative Tribunal; over 80 documents in the District Court jurisdiction and  the claim forms 3 & 4. in the Magistrates Court jurisdiction.

Once a user has been registered, they can log on through the Department's portal. They can navigate to the eLodgment application via the courts portal community and lodge one or more documents. In some instances, where a document contains a large amount of text, they will be required to create this document in Microsoft Word and upload it through the eLodgment application.

Advantages of eLodgment:

  • Lodge a single document or bulk documents.
  • The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • No need to attend the court registry office.
  • Online electronic payment at the time of lodging through either a credit card or direct debit account.
  • An electronic copy of the lodged document is returned to you with either the court seal or filed stamp.
  • Online storage of documents will enable you to edit or delete them prior to submission and view or print them once they have been submitted.
  • No special software is required.
  • Multiple users from an organisation can access the service.
  • Users can search for matters online and view documents lodged.
  • Users can view hearings listed for matters.
