Get Started with File & Serve Illinois


Tips you can use

Tip 1:

If you have filed into an eFileIL Court, then you have a user name and password; you can use that user name (your email address) and password to login to File & Serve Illinois. This will NOT be the same login as your File & ServeXpress user name.

Tip 2:

If you are not sure if you have already registered your email, click the “Forgot Password” link and enter it in the Email ID field. If you have not already registered your email, you will receive the following message: “No user is registered with that email address.”

Tip 3:

If you do not have an eFileIL user name and password, you can Register Now.

NOTE FOR NEW LAW FIRM REGISTRANTS: the FIRM ADMIN should create an account and register all filers at the firm, which will link all filers to the firm’s account. If a firm member registers individually, it will require eFileIL to merge the accounts.

Free Trial

During this FREE TRIAL JUNE 1-10, the $2.99 Service Provider Fees for File & Serve Illinois transactions will be waived (court filing fees and credit card convenience fees will still apply).

  • The eFileIL system requires credit card payment for all fees.
  • To enter a credit card or fee waiver account, simply have a firm administrator navigate to the Firm Admin drop down and select “Payment Accounts.”
    • The Firm Admin will name the account and then add the credit card details, which will be stored on the eFileIL system and available for selection during your File & Serve Illinois filing process.
    • Please note: if you have used another vendor in the eFileIL system, the payment account information used there may be available on your File & Serve Illinois account.

Once you have completed training, registration and set-up payment accounts, you are ready to begin filing. Log-in, select “Submit a New Filing” from the Filing drop down menu and follow the simple, 5-step process.
