To E-File Your Documents
Find an Electronic Filing Service Provider by clicking the button below and choosing a provider. Free filing services are available in the section entitled “EFSPs with Free E-Filing.”
Each provider will require that you register and create an account and then upload your documents. NOTICE: before you go into the e-filing system, you need to fill out your court documents and save them to your computer for upload.
What if I can’t file electronically?
If your county requires you to file electronically, you may qualify for an exemption if you don’t have internet or computer access at home, and it’s difficult for you to travel to a place where you can use a computer; you have a disability that prevents you from e-filing; or you have trouble reading or speaking in English. You can download the Certification for Exemption from E-Filing for Good Cause by clicking the button below and downloading the form. Then, file the original and one copy of your forms, as well as the Certification for Exemption from E-Filing for Good Cause, with the Circuit Clerk’s office in person or by mail.
