Participating counties

Mandatory eFiling in the Wisconsin circuit courts will be phased in on a county-by-county basis. Once mandatory eFiling has been implemented in a county, attorneys and high-volume filing agents will be required to eFile:

eFiling will continue to be voluntary for all other case types and for self-represented litigants. See Wis. Stats. ยง 801.18 for additional details about mandatory eFiling. The map and table featured here provide a summary of the current state of eFiling and a snapshot of which counties are slated to implement mandatory eFiling next.

While eFiling is not currently available for TROs and injunctions, other class codes and case types will be added over time.

A table showing the eFiling status in each county is available here.
