Dearborn County, Plainfield courts move to e-filing

December 15, 2017

One Indiana county implemented voluntary electronic filing on Friday while another moved to a mandatory system, continuing the push for statewide implementation of e-filing that is slated to wrap up in the next 12 months.

Dearborn circuit and superior courts implemented voluntary e-filing on Friday, as did the Plainfield Town Court. Each of those courts will moved to mandatory e-filing on Feb. 13, while Decatur County courts mandated the electronic system on Friday.

No other counties are scheduled to implement voluntary e-filing until February, but Fayette and Blackford counties will move to mandatory systems on Dec. 19 and 26, respectively.

So far, 77 of Indiana’s 92 counties have implemented voluntary e-filing in all or some of their courts. Of those, 64 counties have mandated electronic filing. The Indiana Supreme Court has set a goal of rolling out e-filing to all 92 counties by the end of 2018.
