When should I eFile? And when will I utilize eCourt process?

Any filing that would have normally been submitted over the counter in the Circuit Clerks office is a candidate for eFiling. All orders and/or court documents that would have previously been created by grabbing a form off the table in the courtroom is when the eCourt process would be used. Then go back to your office and log into the Portal and view or print the signed orders from the convenience of your office. If you eFile something that you intend to be reviewed and signed during court you should file no later than 48 hours ahead AND make a note on the filing when your court date/time is. OR there will be a chance it will not be available.
