Things to Remember when using VJEFS:

Roanoke City Circuit Court requires a cover sheet for filing all civil actions. This is accessible through the e-filing site when filing a new case.

Every time a submission to VJEFS is made, you will be required to create a PDF attachment and title that document. Please be advised that Roanoke City Court prefers that EACH document should have its own separate PDF file. For example, an e-filing submission to the court with a Cover Letter, Complaint, and Addendum should be submitted as three separate PDFs: One for the Cover Letter, one for the Complaint, and one for the Addendum.

Make sure to choose the correct jurisdiction when initiating a new case. Be careful as this court is listed as ROANOKE CITY

If you should have any questions at all with regard to this new system, please feel free to call 540-853-6702 and contact Lance Greene, Chief Deputy Clerk or Becky Collier, Civil Supervisor and they will be happy to assist you in anyway that they can.
