Electronic filing of court documents, or "E-filing," is faster and more convenient for parties than traditional paper filing. It also allows courts to process documents more efficiently. Six courts, serving nearly half of Michigan's population, are currently authorized to accept electronic filings. Plans are being developed to create a single, statewide e-filing system that would serve 100% of Michigan's population. In 2014, e-filing was available for the Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, and six trial courts.
