Electronic Filing


YOU MUST BE ON A WORK COMPUTER CONNECTED TO COURTNET TO FILE ELECTRONICALLY. YOU CAN NOT FILE ELECTRONICALLY FROM HOME, THROUGH THE INTERNET.

IF YOU FILED ONLINE LAST YEAR, YOU CAN COPY THE INFORMATION IN LAST YEAR'S STATEMENT INTO YOUR NEW STATEMENT.

IF YOUR STATEMENT IS OPEN FOR MORE THAN 15 MINUTES, THE SYSTEM COULD FORCE IT TO CLOSE. TO AVOID LOSING INFORMATION THAT YOU HAVE ENTERED INTO YOUR STATEMENT IF SUCH A CLOSURE OCCURS, CLICK ON EACH "SAVE" BUTTON AS YOU COME TO IT. IN ADDITION, CLICK ON THE NEAREST "SAVE" BUTTON EVERY 15 MINUTES THAT YOUR STATEMENT IS OPEN.

You can file online if you are a judge, justice or officer or employee of the Unified Court System with access to CourtNet. You can not file a statement online through the Internet. You must file from a work computer. You can not file from home.

You should read the "Electronic Filing Instructions", which can be found on the navigation bar to the left, before you file electronically for the first time.

You may work on your statement over as many sessions as you wish. If you want to exit your statement before it is complete, and save the information you have entered, click the "SAVE" button at the end of the statement.

Once your statement is filed, you can no longer make any changes in your statement online, unless and until we notify you in writing that your statement has been made available for revision. However, you can view and print your statement at any time.

You must contact the Ethics Commission at 212 428-2899 or ethicscomm@nycourts.gov if you want to amend your statement after it has been filed.

We introduced a new electronic filing system in filing year 2013. The new system is not compatible with the previous electronic filing system. Therefore, you will not be able to access any financial disclosure statements that you filed online prior to 2013. If you want a copy of an electronic statement filed before 2013, contact us and we will send you a paper copy.
