In the Court of original instance, you will continue to e-file the notice of appeal, informational statement, and Order/Judgment appealed from with the notice of entry to the underlying docket sheet.
However, you must register the case with the appellate division directly. First you must select the associated Appellate Division found in the “select county” drop down list. After selecting the appellate court, the option you are looking for is called “record initial case information.”
Essentially, you are filling out a form comparable to the informational statement and uploading the same file you previously e-filed on the underlying docket sheet containing the following: notice of appeal, informational statement, and Order/Judgment appealed from with the notice of entry.
Once you have executed this initial step, you will receive an e-mail assigning a case number or docket number (AD2) to the appeal.
You must serve a hard copy of the case number notification and draft an affidavit of service. Uploading the affidavit of service to NYSCEF will start opposing counsel’s clock to register as the Respondent in the appeal.
Once you have completed the two prong process, you will be able to e-file letter applications, stipulations, briefs, records & appendices. Keep in mind if your case qualifies as an e-filed case with the appellate division, applications to extend time, letters to withdraw an appeal or any type of communications with the Court will only be processed electronically.
