Practice setting up your firm and submitting filings
Do you want hands on practice using the system? Create your firm, register users and begin filing practice cases in the Vermont “Stage” environment. Be sure that the web address you're using includes the word “stage” (https://vermont-stage.tylerhost.net/ofsweb). The Stage environment is available any time. Please note that submissions will only be reviewed periodically, so you may not get a timely response on whether your practice submissions have been accepted. The Stage environment is available now only for familiarity and direct hands-on experience and is not a substitute for registering on the actual efiling site when you are ready.
