Cook County Sheriff Changes Request Service of Process

The Cook County Sheriff’s Office recently launched an e-file service for individuals needing to serve civil court documents. The e-filing portal allows parties to electronically request and upload documents such as summons and subpoenas, in addition to paying corresponding service fees, without having to make a trip to the courthouse, according to the sheriff’s website. E-filing is an option available to all who wish to utilize the Cook County’s Sheriff’s Office to serve process in Cook County.

E-Filing is NOT mandatory, and individuals may continue to file their requests in person at any Cook County Sheriff’s Office Civil Process location or by mailing their papers to the Daley Center location, along with payment.
