File & ServeXpress works with the Court to identify local rules of procedure and special instructions that specifically relate to eFiling processes. Our training classes are designed to help you file successfully and avoid rejected filings. However, if you do receive a rejected filing, we are available to guide you through the necessary corrective action.
OUR EFILING EXPERTS ARE AVAILABLE 24x7: 888-529-7587
How to Avoid: An Entry of Appearance must be filed for any Attorney that wishes to authorize filings. The Court will not add an attorney to the service list without an Entry of Appearance. To ensure that there are no delays with your filings and that they properly integrate with the Court's case management system, please file your entry of appearance as the first document in your first filing into the case.
How to Avoid: DuPage County requires that the attorney chosen to authorize filings:
How to Avoid: The document type "Discovery - use for electronic service only" is provided for firms to conveniently eServe Discovery to one another using the File & ServeXpress system. When using this document type to send Discovery, firms should never select "File & Serve" as the delivery option on the Review & Submit tab. Instead, firms should be sure to only select "Serve Only Public" or "Serve Only Private" as the delivery option on the Review & Submit tab before submitting the filing.
How to Avoid: Firms should not combine pleadings into one file. For example, a firm should upload their Motion for Summary Judgment, and then upload their Exhibits and their Proposed Order as separate documents. The Court will reject any transaction where documents have been combined into one file with the exception of Summonses.
How to Avoid: Pleadings for multiple parties must be uploaded in separate transactions. If your firm intends to submit pleadings in the same case on behalf of two or more parties, you must submit separate transactions for each party.
How to Avoid: Please be sure to double-check your pleadings for accuracy before submitting them to the Court. The Court will reject documents with inaccurate or missing information. You can easily review your documents after they have been uploaded into your transaction by using the hyperlinks on both the Documents and Review & Submit tabs.
How to Avoid:
How to Avoid: Your exhibits must be marked "Exhibit" and have the case number on the first page. Separate exhibits must be marked separately.
