Top margins should be set at a minimum of 1.25 inches to provide adequate space for the filed/received stamp to be applied.


ACH Transactions

Q: ACH information is required to eFile; how will this affect billing for other services that I use, such as JUSTICE case searches?

When you eFile, your Nebraska.gov account is set up for direct debit in order to provide filing fees to the courts at the time the filing is accepted. These fees will not be included on your Nebraska.gov invoice. Your Nebraska.gov billing will also become direct debit from the same bank account. Your regular monthly transactions will be invoiced as usual to you via email and will then be debited from your bank account on the 10th of each month.

Q: Is my bank account information safe?

Yes, Nebraska Interactive, DBA Nebraska.gov is fully PCI/DDS compliant. All account information managed in the Nebraska.gov customer database is encrypted and held on our secure servers.

Q: Will I receive an invoice showing all filing fees paid monthly?

No, although your Nebraska.gov account is used for transactions other than eFiling that are included in a monthly invoice. Filing fees are transferred directly to the court at the time the filing is accepted by the court. These transactions do not appear on your invoice.

Q: How can I track filing fees debited from my account and transferred to the court?

Any user on your account may login to view eFiling transaction history and search by date range to view reports on what filings have been accepted by the court, and what fees have been paid.
