From: Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County
Please note that eFileIL will be unavailable for Probate, Domestic Relations, and Domestic Violence Divisions beginning Wednesday, July 7th at 8:00 p.m. CST. The system will be unavailable for e-filing until Monday, July 12th at 8:00 a.m.
During this time you will be able to file your court documents in person at the courthouse (Daley Center) for these divisions during regular business hours. Conventional filing will be available on Thursday, July 8 and Friday, July 9th from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The motion type will no longer be selected in the Case Cross Reference section. It will now be selected in the Filings section.
You will select your motion related filing code and then select your motion type in the dropdown box below the filing code.
There will be more motion codes than before, and you will need to select the one that fits the case type or motion type you are filing. Select "Motion Hearing-Type Not Listed" if none of the other options fits your filing.
In addition, specific to the Probate division, you will no longer have to file a subsequent filing to schedule your Opening Case Management Hearing Date. The system will now generate your Opening Case Management date when your new case is accepted. The court date and time will print on the face of your e-filed documents.
Changes to the eFileIL system are effective July 12, 2021
