On March 3, 2014, Wisconsin eCourts account system was enhanced, providing improved account features and new tools for attorneys who use electronic filing. Following are two significant additions to make note of.

eCourts provides a mailing address section where attorneys can update and maintain their mailing address(es) with the circuit courts. One address can be added for all courts or addresses can be specific to an individual county. Attorneys should utilizethis new feature for all address changes with the circuit courts and should not contact the clerk of circuit court office to make changes. Account information can be updated by following the Update account information link on any eCourts log in screen.

Case view rights can also be used to provide view access to a litigant on a case.
To use this new delegation feature, paralegals/legal secretaries must create an eCourts account. To grant these rights, follow the delegation link in the right-side navigation of the circuit court eFiling site.
