Today our office took advantage of e-filing going live in Jefferson Family Court.
Being able to file court documents online has been possible in other counties (such as Oldham) for months, but courts in Louisville were the last scheduled rollout across the state due to the volume of cases in the metro area.
The system did experience issues in the afternoon, but this evening we were able to successfully file a response and counter-petition on behalf of a divorce client. This new process should allow cost savings by minimizing trips to the courthouse and allowing court papers to be served by email. Attorneys must be trained in e-filing before they are eligible to use the system.
