Illinois Supreme Court Responds to E-Filing Extension Requests from DeKalb, DuPage, Madison, and McHenry Counties

The Supreme Court of Illinois has issued four orders in response to mandatory e-filing extension requests from DeKalb, DuPage, Madison, and McHenry counties. DuPage County was granted an additional year to transition to the state's new electronic filing system.

DeKalb County petitioned the court requesting an extension to migrate to eFileIL until Jan. 1, 2019. The extension was denied. The circuit clerk was ordered to migrate to eFileIL with sufficient time to test and train in advance of the July 1 mandate date. The county shall also make court documents and case information avialable to re:SearchIL by July 1. Read the Jan. 16 order on the Illinois Courts website.

DuPage County petitioned the court requesting an extension to migrate to eFileIL until Jan. 1, 2021. DuPage Circuit Court Clerk Chris Kachiroubas cited the county's current e-filing system, which has more features and better functionality than the new system, as the reason for seeking additional time. Although the court denied the three-year extension, the court recognized the level of integration and e-filing features currently implemented by the county, and granted an extension through July 1, 2019. Read the Jan. 16 order on the Illinois Courts website. 

Madison County petitioned the court requesting an extension to migrate to eFileIL and allow filing through standalone e-filing systems until July 1, 2023. The court denied the request for extension. The circuit clerk was ordered to continue to mandate civil e-filing until the migration is complete and the county shall make court documents and case information available to re:SearchIL by July 1. Read the Jan. 16 order on the Illinois Courts website. 

McHenry County petitioned the court requesting an extension to migrate to eFileIL and make documents and case information available to re:SearchIL until Jan. 1, 2019. The court denied the request. The circuit clerk was ordered to continue to mandate civil e-filing until the migration is complete and the county shall make court documents and case information available to re:SearchIL by July 1.
