E-filing expanded in Oakland County courts

The e-filing pilot project in Oakland County Family Court has been expanded to include divorce cases where the parties have minor children.

The Michigan Supreme Court, in Administrative Order 2010-3, Revised E-filing Pilot Project in Oakland Circuit Court, Family Division, has authorized, effective immediately, e-filing for all cases coded “DM” (divorce with minor children):

Recognizing the logistical challenges associated with implementing e-filing in “DM” cases, the Court authorizes the Family Division of the Sixth Circuit Court to gradually implement the pilot beginning with a limited number of cases assigned to a single judge and a single Friend of the Court referee team assigned to that judge. The Sixth Circuit Court may expand the scope of the pilot at any time to include additional judges and/or FOC referee teams without further authorization of the Court.

In addition, the MSC has revised and extended the time for the pilot e-filing project for the Oakland County Circuit Court. See, Administrative Order 2007-3, Revised E-filing Pilot Project in Oakland County.

The Court has also ordered a pilot e-filing project for the Oakland County Probate Court. See, Administrative Order No. 2011-6, Proposed E-filing Project in Oakland Probate Court, for details.
