Effective July 1st, 2019, any new notice of appeal stemming from a matter which originated and was e-filed in the Supreme or Surrogate’s Court of Queens County must be e-filed in the Appellate Division, Second Department. Additionally, any pre-July 1, 2019 notice of appeal in a matter which originated and was e-filed in those Queen County courts which is being perfected on or after August 15, 2019 must be e-filed in the Appellate Division.
Also effective July 1, 2019, any new notice of appeal from a matter originating in and e-filed in Richmond County Supreme or Surrogate’s Court may be e-filed upon stipulation of the parties.

This is the only instance thus far of voluntary participation in NYSCEF e-filing in the Second Department.
Upon implementation of this expansion, e-filing will be mandatory in appeals of matters originating and e-filed in Westchester, Suffolk, Orange, Dutchess, Rockland, Putnam, and Queens Counties, and will be voluntary in appeals originating from and e-filed in Richmond County.
