County Court of Victoria – First time users

Only legal practitioners can eFile documents through CITEC Confirm. Read more about our special services.

You can also only record one set of practitioner details per CITEC Confirm account code. The details should apply to all persons using the account code for eFiling.

Can I lodge documents in the County Court if I am based outside of Victoria?

Yes, as long as you have a Victorian Legal Service’s Board solicitor code number (Victorian solicitor code).

A solicitor must have a Victorian solicitor code to file in the county court’s case management system. Many interstate firms have agencies or business addresses in Victoria and already have a Victorian solicitor code they can use.

If you don’t have a Victorian solicitor code, you may apply for access to eFiling. Simply download and complete the Request by interstate solicitor to lodge documents via eFiling form.

A solicitor having conduct of the proceeding needs to sign this form and submit it to the Court through the applicable registry:

Common Law Division
(03) 8636 6508

Commercial Law Division
(03) 8636 6690

After the court receives the completed form, they’ll process your request and inform you of their decision.

If approved, they will issue you with a code that can then be entered into the eFiling system for the particular case that you are associated with. This code can only be used for filing on the case that it is assigned to.

What are the hours of operation?

You can access our County Court of Victoria eFiling system 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However you can only successfully lodge documents during registry hours.

If you attempt to lodge a document after the closing time of the corresponding registry, the registry will process and stamp it on the next business day.

View the registry hours.
