Electronic filing in all-new courts, updates, and enhancements to our filing workflow, new features, and more. Here’s what has changed at One Legal in the last three months.
eFile – physically serve – eFile
eFiling brings with it new opportunities for technological enhancements, from court to filer. One of the most recent of these is a new One Legal feature that allows filers to place an eFiling, a service of process order, and an eFiling of the proof of service all in one go.
Rather than waiting to receive the proof of service and then return to your account to submit it to the court, One Legal will generate this request when you first file. By connecting your proof of service to the original eFiling transaction, you save time and close the loop on service even faster.
Extended Customer Support hours
Our Customer Support team is now available later! You can speak with an experienced Customer Support agent by phone or email between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.

Return Date selector
A new feature for filers in Cook County, Illinois allows users to request a later return date than the court’s system originally picked for them, as long as it is within the range of valid dates according to statute.
The return date is the date by which a defendant must respond to the document filed. For some case types, it is an actual court appearance date.
Return dates are required most often on summonses and alias summonses in Cook County, but apply to some other document types as well.
UniCourt Marketplace partnership
One Legal has launched a new partnership program, connecting with fellow legal technology vendors to offer special discounts to our customers. The first company to join this program is legal research company, UniCourt.
