Probate Court Of Jefferson County, Alabama


Jefferson County Probate Court is pleased to announce that we will commence electronic filing of certain judicial pleadings on October 1, 2019.

We are excited to roll this service out for those we serve in the legal community. Utilizing advances in the operations and technology of the Court, we will be the second county in Alabama to offer e-Filing.

Benchmark Web, a part of our Pioneer case management system, will provide attorneys the ability to electronically file certain new cases and file additional pleadings in already existing cases. Attorneys will be able to view their own cases and the images available.

To begin e-Filing, attorneys will request a log-in at Once the login is received, the attorney will be ready to e-File.

Payment for court costs will be made for initial filings with a Credit Card payment through the Benchmark Web system. This is the same system utilized now at the counters in Birmingham and Bessemer. Court costs on subsequent filings in existing cases will be handled at the next hearing or at the conclusion of the case.
