As of July 1, 2018, E-Filing became mandatory in Illinois for all Civil Areas (except Quasi-Criminal, Housing and Wills). The Illinois Supreme Court mandated Cook County to Utilize the Statewide Electronic Filing System (eFileIL) for Civil Case Filings in Cook County - Illinois Supreme Court Order M.R. 18368. E-Filing will streamline the process for filing documents, generating long-term cost savings.
The eFileIL System is not proprietary to the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County.
The eFileIL System is the Illinois Supreme Court's statewide e-filing initiative providing a uniform filing experience for Attorneys and Self-Represented Litigants (SRLs) to any Illinois court using technology provided through the Administrative Offices of the Illinois Courts using software provided by Tyler Technologies.
