Electronic filing of civil documents

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is a system-based exchange of Issue summonses for oral examination.

From 3 October 2022, practitioners will be required to file most civil documents for the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria electronically using the CMS Portal.

The CMS Portal will include the forms currently previously available for filing through Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) program:

  • file civil complaints
  • file defaults judgments
  • issue warrants to seize property
  • issue summonses for oral examination.

We recommend all court users ensure they have retained copies of documents filed via EDI supplier third party systems:

If you have any additional queries contact your EDI service provider for further assistance.

Refer to the civil matters section for information about the civil process in the Magistrates’ Court.
