The Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) requires all case documents from governmental entities to be filed electronically. Attorneys representing individuals, or individuals who choose to do so, may also file documents electronically.
This site may be used to electronically file documents related to an existing case or a new case. To use the Secure File Transfer system on this site, you will need to create an account using a valid email address. Once your account has been created, you will be able to electronically file PDF documents with OAH. You will also be able to receive documents from OAH, related to your case, which can be viewed and/or downloaded.
In order to ensure all documents filed with OAH are properly identified and formatted, OAH requires parties to follow the Electronic Filing and Naming Guidelines, which can be found on the OAH Secure e-File home page.
After you have successfully filed your document(s), you should receive an email confirmation. Also, you will receive an email notification, anytime OAH sends you document(s). This email will provide a link to the Secure File Transfer, where you can log in and view and download the document(s), for a period of 90 days.
By creating an account, you acknowledge and agree, until further notification by you, to receive documents from OAH electronically and waive receipt of documents via any other method. In the event your contact information should change, it is your responsibility to notify OAH. To complete an initial or modify an existing Consent to Electronic Service Agreement, please go to CESA Forms.
