The Circuit Clerk’s Office has received revisions to the Manual on Recordkeeping from the Administrative Office of Illinois Courts (AOIC). An important change that affects your filings is that the Recordkeeping Manual does NOT allow facsimile documents to be filed with the Clerk.
Emailed documents are also NOT allowed for filing. The original documents must be filed with the Circuit Clerk’s Office.
The Civil Family Scheduling process must change to comply with the revised recordkeeping manual.
Effective June 12, 2017, when you call the Circuit Clerk’s Office at 630.232.3413 and follow the prompts to speak with a scheduling clerk to get an available date, the clerk will be scheduling the court date while on the phone.
- You will no longer fax or email Notice of Motion paperwork.
- You must mail or come to the Circuit Clerk’s main or satellite offices to file the original documents.
- Mailed documents must have enough time for delivery along with sufficient time for the clerk to enter, scan, and file the documents in the court file prior to the court date.
