Electronic Filing

January 2016, the Illinois Supreme Court announced mandatory e-filing of civil cases in circuit courts by January 1, 2018.  In an effort to be proactive rather than reactive, the Champaign County Circuit Clerk’s office has been live with permissive eFiling since April 2017, and has been fully integrated with our court case management system, JANO Justice Systems, since August 2017.

Attorneys and pro se litigants can e-file online from their home, office, or by using electronic filing terminals provided in the Champaign County Circuit Clerk’s Office using any certified e-file service provider.  The list of available certified e-file service providers can be found at EFileIL.com, or by using the following link:
