As of  January 1, 2018 the State of Illinois has mandated that all civil filings must be filed electronically in all counties in Illinois. The Lake County Circuit Clerk's Office has adopted the State’s e-Filing solution. This means that while the Lake County Circuit Clerk’s Office accepts electronic filings, we do not provide our own e-filing system in Lake County.  Filers have a choice of choosing from a number of certified Electronic Filing Service Providers (EFSPs) that have been certified by the State’s e-Filing Manager, to submit their filings electronically to Lake County.
