In 2015, the Michigan Supreme Court Administrative Office (SCAO) worked with the Legislature, courts and other stakeholders in developing and passing legislation to authorize, design, and implement statewide e-filing for the future of Michigan’s courts. This legislation was signed into law by Governor Rick Snyder on December 23, 2015, and took effect on January 1, 2016. The 20th Circuit Court of Ottawa County became one of five pilot courts for this statewide solution due to its history as a current E-filing courthouse, since E-filing’s implementation in 2011. On November 13, 2017, the 20th Circuit Court went live with MiFILE the new statewide solution. This e-filing solution provides litigants the means to electronically file documents to the court, serve documents electronically to other parties, and receive notifications and documents from the courts, 24 hours a day.
