Preferred Order for eFiling in the Probate and Family Court

When eFiling a new case, the complaint and petition must always be filed first. There is then a requested preferred order for the additional filings to follow. If eFiling into an existing case (subsequent filings), there is no preferred order, except for the Annual Rogers Review.
