The Wisconsin Supreme Court has unanimously approved a gradual transition to mandatory electronic filing in the circuit courts. The new eFiling rule is enacted as Wis. Stat. § 801.18 and is posted on the Circuit Court eFiling Rules page.
The eFiling rule has been effective since July 1, 2016; however, eFiling did not become mandatory in every county and for every case type on that date. Over the course of approximately three years, mandatory eFiling was enabled for 35 circuit court case types and classification codes. Click here to view the eFiling implementation timeline.
