Online case opening allows for cases to be filed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and eliminates the need to come to the Clerk’s Office or to provide the Clerk’s Office with paper copies of documents. All filing fees are paid online during case opening.
A CM/ECF login and password are required to complete all electronic filings, including case openings. If you do not have a CM/ECF login and password please register using the ECF Registration Form.
Please note that sealed cases may NOT be filed electronically and should still be presented in paper format to the Clerk’s Office for processing.
If you are filing any emergency motions along with your complaint or notice of removal, please contact the Clerk’s Office at 414-297-3372.
