HOW ELECTRONIC FILING AND SERVICE WILL WORK DURING THE ROLLOUT SCHEDULE
Starting in October, Judicial will begin its transition from LexisNexis File & Serve to ICCES in the 14th, 20th, 17th, and 8th Judicial Districts. The transition consists of only those case classes currently available to electronic filing now: district court civil, domestic, water and probate cases; county court money and forcible entry and detainer cases. No additional case types will be available for electronic filing through ICCES. During the rollout, ICCES and File & Serve will run parallel. Here’s how the schedule will work for organizations that use electronic filing now.
ICCES-Live District Requirements: On the date a district launches ICCES, all organizations will stop using LexisNexis File & Serve in that district and begin using ICCES instead. All electronic case filing must be done through ICCES once a district goes live. Districts will deliver all orders, notices, and other correspondence through ICCES. In addition, all prior cases and documents filed in these courts through LexisNexis will be available in ICCES. Thus, organizations will resume electronic filing and service in these cases seamlessly through ICCES. Click here to view the ICCES rollout schedule.
Non-Live District Requirements: Organizations must continue to use LexisNexis File & Serve for all electronic case filing in non-live districts. Non-live courts will continue to deliver all orders, notices, and other correspondence through LexisNexis File & Serve.
Training: Although your organization may not be located in a live jurisdiction, your firm may need to file into a live district. We therefore encourage all organizations that use LexisNexis now to take advantage of ICCES training. Click here to register for ICCES training.
