- ONe-Key does not provide access to court documents. It provides access to some limited information from the court file, such as the names of counsel representing the various parties, the latest step or order made in the proceeding, and the amount claimed in the proceeding. A ONe-Key account is also used to issue and file court documents via the court’s online portals. There is no cost to register or to search court files; regular court filing fees must be paid when issuing/filing documents (except where the document being filed has no associated fee).
