The Utah Supreme Court and Court of Appeals will permit documents that do not require a filing fee to be filed by email. The emailed document, which must bear the required signature, will be accepted as an "original" document until the true original and any required copies are received by the court. The original must be received by the respective court within 5 business days from the date of the transmission by email. If the original is not received within that period, the court will treat the email filing as void. An emailed filing is considered "received" when stamped by the clerk's office. The time for stamping is limited to regular office hours (weekdays, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m, excluding holidays.).

All risks associated with filing by email are borne by the sender. The email address for the Supreme Court is supremecourt@utcourts.gov and for the Court of Appeals is courtofappeals@utcourts.gov.

The Utah State Courts mission is to provide the people an open, fair, efficient, and independent system for the advancement of justice under the law.
