ELECTRONIC FILING AND DOCUMENT RETRIEVAL
Circuit Court Clerk Chris Kachiroubas urges all DuPage practitioners to avail themselves of the Clerk Case History Restricted Information System (CHRIS) for electronic filing of all court documents and retrieval of court documents.
Using the CHRIS system, attorneys can file any court document electronically through three vendors: Lexis Nexis, Wiznet and I-2 File. Documents are accepted or denied on the same day they are filed up to 4:30 pm. If a document is denied filing, it is returned with an explanation of why filing was denied. Attorneys can establish an Auto Pay account for all court fees in any amount or can pay via credit card for each required fee. Using the I-2 File vendor, copies, including certified copies, of any court document can be received
When efiling, counsel must be sure to follow 18th Circuit’s local rules on efiling. The local rules set forth which cases qualify for e-filing and what steps are necessary to use e-filing in a particular case.
To enroll in the CHRIS system please e-mail your name, firm name, address, telephone number and DuPage County Attorney Number to email@example.com. You will receive your ID, password and instructions on the electronic filing and document retrieval system.
