Attorneys and Pro Se Filers

E-Filing provides the ability to electronically file documents anytime, anywhere via a simple, secure web portal reducing filing time and trips to the courthouse.

How to Start e-Filing in Illinois

Step 1 – Verify that your county is accepting e-filings by visiting the Active Courts page.

Step 2 – Select an EFSP. An EFSP provides an online service to help you file your documents, and acts as the intermediary between you and the eFileIL system. Each EFSP offers a variety of additional services and you should evaluate which provider meets your filing needs.

Step 3 – Please review the Rules and Standards for the jurisdiction in which you are filing.

Many of the EFSPs also offer training videos and manuals that provide additional information on how to file utilizing that service provider’s filing portal. Once you register with a service provider, you do not need to re-register should you choose to use a different provider. You may simply log in with your existing username and password.
