Mandatory eFiling Passes

The Wisconsin Supreme Court passed a rule requiring eFiling for civil, family, small claims, and paternity cases. This rule (Wis. Stat. 801.18) will likely take effect July 1, 2016 and roll out in pilot counties that currently offer voluntary eFiling. With this rule eFiling will be required for attorneys and high-volume filing agents. Those who are not represented by an attorney and low-volume filing agents may use the system on a voluntary basis. There will be a fee of $20 per case, but this can be waived for indigent parties and governmental units. 

The Court System has an eFiling page on their website which links to the online eFiling system as well as user guides and training materials. Check for training opportunities through local colleges or bar associations or watch the demo on the Court's website.
