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 Richland County Circuit Clerk’s office has mandated e-filing for new and existing civil cases since October 1.

Attorneys and pro se litigants can e-file online from their home, office, or by using electronic filing terminals provided in the Richland 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 OdysseyeFileIL.com or by using the following link:
