For substituted service:
The server tries to personally
serve the papers on the other
party a number of times
(usually 3 or more) but cannot
find the party at home
(or work, if that is the
address the server has).
The server must try different days
of the week and different times
of the day, at times when the
other person is likely to be home
(or at work if serving him or
If the server is unable to find
the person to be served on
each one of those times,
he or she can, on the
last attempt, leave the papers
with someone at the other
party’s house, at least 18
years old, who lives there.
If the server is trying to
serve the papers at the
other party’s work,
then the papers can be
left with someone at the office
that appears to be in
charge and is at least 18 years old.
The server must tell the person
that he or she hands the papers
to that they are legal documents
for the other party.
The server must also write
down the name and address of the
person he or she gave the
Court papers to.
If the person will not give his
or her name, the server must
write down a detailed physical
description. Next, the server
must mail a copy of the papers
to the other party at the address
where the papers were left.
The server must then:
Write up a “Declaration of Due Diligence,”
which is document for the Court
detailing every attempt he or she
made to serve the papers in person.
It should include the dates he or she
went to the house or work,
times of day, and what the result
was (for example, “No one answered
the door” or “Party not in the office”).
The server has to sign this document
under penalty of perjury.
There is no form for this, but the
server can use a Declaration
Your court’s self-help center may have
a local form to help you with this step too.
Fill out a Proof of Service, detailing when,
where, and how the papers were served.
The server has to make sure to write
the name of the person he or she left
the papers with
(or a detailed physical description).
The server signs the
(Proof of Service - Summons POS -010)
and returns it to you,
with the Declaration of Due Diligence,
to file in court.
Substituted service is complete
10 days after the day the papers are mailed.
NOTE: Sometimes, like in small claims
cases, you can use substituted service
the first time the server tries to serve
the papers in person and the other party
is not at home or work.
“Substituted service” is not a very
reliable type of service because the
Court does not know for sure that
the person that had to be served
actually received the paperwork.

The Los Angeles Superior Court website allows for the initial
filing of Small Claims Cases online.
Once your filing is reviewed, fees are paid, and your electronic
documents are accepted by the Court, your claim will
be filed with the appropriate courthouse as if you had filed in person.
How it works...
Step 1 - Complete the questions on this website and submit your claim
Upon receiving your claim information, the Court will send a Notice of Receipt of Documents
to the email address you provided. This notice contains your efiling ID number and
confirms that the Court has received your document(s).
(This notice does not mean that your claim has been processed or accepted by the Court)
Step 2 - Wait for the Court to either request payment or reject your filing
Upon receiving your document(s) electronically, the Court must review your claim to verify
that all filing criteria have been met. If your filing is determined to be valid, the Court
will email you a Notice of Payment Due that describes the fees associated with the
filing and the total amount that you are required to pay.
The Court will not accept any claim until payment has been made.
If payment is not made by the given due date, the filing will be rejected.
If your claim is rejected, the Court will email you a Notice of Rejection of Filing stating the
reasons why your claim was rejected. You will have (5) calendar days from the
date of the Notice of Rejection of Filing to correct and resubmit your claim.
If you fail to complete and resubmit your claim to the Court within those (5) calendar days,
your claim and any associated information will be deleted from this website and you will need to start over.
Step 3 - Pay any fees that are due by credit card
Log in to this website and look for your filing under the 'View Payment Due' menu option.
Once you have located and selected your filing, follow the instructions for
entering your credit card information and submit your payment.
Once the Court has received your payment, a Notice of Acceptance of Filing and a copy
of the processed documents will be sent to you by email for your records.
Once you receive this email, your filing has been accepted and
the initial filing of your small claims case is complete.
You may also have to arrange to serve the defendant(s) with notice
of the law suit after your initial claim filing has been accepted.
For all small claims matters filed in Van Nuys,
you must serve all named defendants with the
Los Angeles County Consumer & Business Affairs
Department's Online Dispute Resolution flyer.

What is efiling?
Efiling means electronic filing.
The eFiling website lets you fill out forms and file Small Claims online.
Your claim will be filed with the appropriate courthouse as if you had filed in person,
provided the information you supply is complete and the fees paid are correct.
A claim filed electronically from this website has the same legal effect as a claim in paper form.
Filing a claim electronically does not alter or extend any filing deadline.
A claim filed electronically with the Court after the close of business is
considered to have been filed on the next Court day.
For current business hours, contact the appropriate Court location.
What is required to use efiling?
How do I start and what information
do I need to file Small Claims

To use the efiling site, you must register an account with the Court.
To register, you need the following:

What documents may I

How much does it cost?
In addition to the regular filing fees, you will pay an Efiling Service Provider Fee.
This fee reimburses the Court for providing electronic public access services.
Currently, you cannot file the application for Waiver of Court Cost and Fees electronically.
If you are eligible for and seek a Waiver of Court Costs and Fees,
you must file your case documents in person at the appropriate courthouse.
Can I pay with a check?
No. To use this website, you must pay for all required fees
with a valid credit card (currently Visa, MasterCard or Discover).

The Los Angeles Superior Court maintains a high standard of security
on its website. This site uses a full
128-bit encryption, ensuring that confidential information,
e.g., names, passwords, credit card numbers, etc., remains secure.
Can I save an incomplete claim
and return to it later?
Yes. You have up to five (5) calendar days to complete
and submit your claim on this website.
If you are unable to complete the process once you begin,
you can stop and return to access it again during these five calendar days
with your information saved. Any claims that are not completed within that
period of time will be deleted. To save an incomplete claim, click on the
'Save & Exit' button found near the bottom of the screen you're working on.
To resume, you must log in. From the 'My Efiling' screen,
select 'Resume Incomplete Claims' then click on the 'Submit' button.
After completing a claim,
how do I complete additional
claims without re-logging in?
Click on the 'File a New Claim' option in the main navigation menu
located on the left hand side of the screen, re-agree to the efiling terms
and conditions, and begin answering the claim questions for your new claim.
What can I expect after submitting
my claim via this site?
After you complete the questions on this website and submit your claim electronically,
the Court will send a Notice of Receipt of Documents to the e-mail address you provided.
If the Court accepts your claim, your credit card will be charged for the fee amount
you agreed to pay. The Court will e-mail you a Notice of Acceptance of Filing and a
copy of the processed filing documents for your records. You can only consider your
claim completed when you have received the Notice of Acceptance of Filing.
If your claim is rejected, the Court will e-mail you a Notice of Rejection
of Filing stating why your claim was rejected, and will not charge your
credit card. If your claim is rejected, you will have five (5) calendar days from
the date of the Notice of Rejection of Filing to correct electronically and resubmit your
claim to the Court using this website. If you do not complete and resubmit
for filing within those five calendar days, your incomplete/rejected
claim and any information previously provided will be deleted from this website.
If I file my claim late in the day,
will it count as being filed that same day?
