Courts Electronic Filing


Welcome to the CE-File Website. We are pleased to announce that electronic filing and payment of fees is now available for Technology and Construction Court, Chancery Division, Commercial and Admiralty Courts and Bankruptcy and Companies Courts. The CE-File system is now in an extended pilot phase and we welcome any feedback about the system and how it works. Your feedback is important to ensure we can provide the best possible service. Court users are now able to file new cases and file on existing cases where a new number has been allocated.


Thank you and we look forward to receiving your feedback.


The Chancellor of the High Court, Mr Justice Blair and Mr Justice Coulson
