WHAT IS E-FILING?
E-Filing is short for “electronic filing.” It is the process of
filing court papers using a computer instead of handing
them to a court clerk in person. Michigan uses a software
system called MiFILE for the e-filing process. You can log
into MiFILE from any computer with Internet access.

Payments can also be made online, by telephone, by mail, or through the Court’s drop box (located at the front door of the building).
