As of Thursday, December 13, 2018, eFile Indiana service providers were permitted to begin placing electronic court filings in the state’s second most populous county. This marks the passing of a major milestone in ongoing efforts to bring all Indiana’s courts under one statewide electronic filing system.
One login, many courts
Legal professionals in Indiana have the option to use one of several certified eFiling service providers to submit documents to the court via the new system. However, One Legal is currently the only Indiana eFiling service provider that lets Lake County users file in both Indiana and Illinois courts from one login. This feature—accessible through a simple, one-time linking process with each state’s eFiling system—may be especially useful to law firms who conduct business across Lake County’s urban border with the Chicago metropolitan area, including Cook County, Illinois.
No service fees for online court filing
One Legal is also is one of only two Indiana eFiling providers with no service fees per filing and no fees for starting and maintaining an account. Filers only pay court-assessed fees and a payment processing fee (just 25 cents per filing when paying by ACH).
Additionally, those who use One Legal get access to a variety of optional services not available through many other EFSPs, such as nationwide process service, court research and retrieval, and full-service filing by email. The same low pricing also applies to filers in all of Illinois and Texas, and users can also file in California courts for $9.95 per filing.
