E-filers are required to comply with the e-filing filing requirements listed in SDSC form number PR-188 (“Electronic Filing Requirements (Probate)”). This form also contains the list of documents that are ineligible for e-filing. Self-represented litigants are not required to e-file, but are strongly encouraged to participate voluntarily.
