Supreme Court
The Illinois Supreme Court is currently operating an Electronic Filing Pilot Project, which includes the e-filing of documents in all cases on the Court's general docket and attorney disciplinary matters on the Court's miscellaneous record docket. The E-Renewal filing process of annual registration under Supreme Court Rule 721(f) has also been included.

Appellate Court
Electronic filing is currently not taking place in the Appellate Court.


Trial Courts
Prior to the Supreme Court's Order M.R. 18368 (January 22, 2016), 15 trial courts had been approved to conduct electronic filing programs under Electronic Filing Standards and Principles (Standards), which the Illinois Supreme Court approved on October 24, 2012. The Standards completed the pilot stage of an e-filing program which began on September 19, 2002, when the Illinois Supreme Court initially approved e-filing in civil cases on a pilot basis. The Standards were amended effective September 16, 2014, to include criminal case types, including traffic citations.

Consistent with the Supreme Court Order, effective July 1, 2017, all 102 trial courts are to transmit the record on appeal through eFileIL to their respective reviewing court. The Order also mandates that, effective January 1, 2018, all civil cases shall be e-filed in the trial courts and e-filing shall be mandated through the centralized EFM in 87 counties not exempted by the Supreme Court's Order. The 15 exempt counties may continue to use their existing e-filing system, but are expected to transition to eFileIL. The 15 counties operating e-filing are Clinton, Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Kendall, Lake, Madison, Marion, McHenry, Montgomery, Moultrie, Sangamon, St. Clair, Will, and Winnebago.

You can also find a table that identifies the courts with approved e-filing programs, including the 15 counties which were approved for e-filing and are exempted under Supreme Court Order M.R. 18368. http://www.illinoiscourts.gov/EBusiness/Electronic_Filing.asp
