Citizens statewide can now eFile small claims cases

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Citizens statewide who represent themselves in small claims cases may now skip trips to the courthouse to file documents and instead file them electronically. The Administrative Office of the Courts expanded the availability of eFiling for self-represented litigants in small claims cases this week from three pilot counties to statewide.

The AOC first offered small claims eFiling for self-represented litigants in September, piloting the program in Fayette, Hardin and Kenton counties. This was the first time any part of the state court system’s eFiling program was available to the public.

To begin eFiling for small claims, users must register as a first-time user. During registration, users will be asked to specify an account type and should select Self Represented Litigant from the drop-down menu. For assistance with eFiling and information about handling small claims, visit eCourts Help and use the tab titled Self-Represented Litigants.

EFilings are received by Offices of Circuit Court Clerk, which maintain records for Circuit Court and District Court and operate in all 120 Kentucky counties.
