Circuit court eFiling

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has unanimously approved a gradual transition to mandatory electronic filing in the circuit courts. The new eFiling rule is enacted as Wis. Stat. 801.18 and is posted on the Circuit Court eFiling Rules page.

The eFiling rule has been effective since July 1, 2016; however, eFiling did not become mandatory in every county and for every case type on that date. Over the course of approximately two years, mandatory eFiling was enabled for civil, family, small claims, paternity, criminal, traffic, forfeiture, formal and informal probate, guardianship, mental commitment, and judgment and lien cases across the state. Most recently (March 2019), eFiling was mandated for adoption, commitment of an inmate, complex forfeiture, John Doe, juvenile adoption, juvenile CHIPS, juvenile civil commitment, juvenile civil law and ordinance violations, juvenile delinquency, juvenile guardianship, and termination of parental rights cases. The scope will continue to expand, including more case types and class codes over time. Click here to see where additional voluntary eFiling is available.
