File & Serve Illinois is a customized eFiling application for the statewide eFileIL system, developed by File & ServeXpress – the same company providing eFiling and eService to mass tort and other civil cases throughout Illinois since 2005.

File & Serve Illinois can be used for eFiling and eService in all Illinois available courts that have gone live on the eFileIL system.

DuPage County is exempt from eFileIL until July 1, 2019. Thus, filers can continue using File & ServeXpress in DuPage County until this date.

ASBESTOS CASES: File & ServeXpress can still be used for eFiling of asbestos cases in Madison County until January 1, 2019. All counties using File & ServeXpress for eService of asbestos cases will continue indefinitely – due to court Orders instructing parties to use File & ServeXpress for eService. Specifically, File & ServeXpress will continue for eService of asbestos cases in the following counties: Cook, Madison, McLean, Macon, Morgan, Peoria, Richland, Rock Island and Tazewell.
