E-Filing has arrived at the Cook County Sheriff’s Office. We are dedicated to providing the public with the best possible experience and service. The E-File Portal will allow users to electronically file many types of documents with our office without the need to travel to a courthouse.
Due to the COVID-19 threat and the orders issued by Governor Pritzker and Chief Judge Evans, our office will not attempt on any services related to a residential eviction, unless an emergency order is entered by the Court that complies with the Governor's Executive Order 2020-30. We are serving commercial eviction papers. If you are filing a commercial eviction you MUST indicate that in the service notes section of your e-filing.
If your service was not served due to the COVID-19 threat or due to the Governor's and Chief Judge Evans' orders, you can file the papers again with our office by selecting FEE WAIVER and uploading the proof of service from the Cook County Sheriff's Office Civil Process Look Up for your service. This proof of service will contain the necessary language for the fee waiver to be recorded in our office.
