  • The Notice of Electronic Filing (NEF) did not give me a free look at the document. What should I do?
    Links in a NEF to view documents for free expire 15 days after the NEF is generated by the system. Also, if an assistant or someone else has access to your email account, that person may have clicked on the document link and used the free look. Check to see if one of these scenarios apply to your situation. If you still cannot determine why your free look did not work, contact the ECF Help Desk. 603-225-1423 Option 7.
