St. Louis City Circuit Court eFiling
Beginning July 8, 2013, the 22nd Judicial Circuit Court (St. Louis City) is implementing electronic filing.
This means attorneys will no longer be able to file most paperwork in-person at the courthouse. Other court jurisdictions in Missouri have been implementing eFiling and eventually all 45 circuits will make the switch.
If you are not familiar with eFiling, the first step is to register with the Missouri Supreme Court. The process takes just a few minutes and only requires your bar number and an email address. Once you have initiated a case, or entered your appearance in a case, all pertinent documents will be available to you with the click of your mouse.
After you have become a registered attorney, you will be able to conduct most courthouse business electronically.
Filing fees will not increase because of eFiling. Payment can be made with a credit card or your office can set up a debit account, where fees are automatically deducted from your account with each filing.
More than 40,000 criminal and civil cases are filed each year in St. Louis City Circuit Court. The switch to electronic filing will produce a major savings in paper cost, staff resources and the amount of time your office spends traveling to the courthouse to file and review cases.
