Will County documents available electronically

From this morning's Joliet Herald:

The circuit court clerk's office now has the ability to electronically send noncertified copies of documents from scanned images, pursuant to a court administrative order, Circuit Clerk Pamela McGuire announced.

"Our office believes this service is another way we serve the public's best interest. For those who utilize the courts, this ability can save a trip to the courthouse, fuel and parking," McGuire said. "The fees for the electronic documents are consistent with our normal paper copy fees pursuant to statute. In the very near future we hope to be able to process certified copy requests as well."

To obtain documents electronically, visit, select E-Documents and follow the instructions.

Requests can be submitted 24 hours a day, seven days a week from the convenience of one's office or home. Upon confirmation of payment, the documents will be electronically sent in a portable document format. Payments can be made by credit or debit card on the site. All document requests will be processed during normal business hours.

"The office of the Will County circuit clerk continues to look for convenient ways through technology to serve the public and utilize the clerk's office," McGuire said. "We hope you find this new service useful and cost effective."
