Welcome Lake County to e-filing! Now is the time to get your service contact attached to your cases.


On Wednesday, December 12th Lake County joined the list of counties in the Indiana e-file system. 

This is just a reminder that if you have open cases in any of these courts now is the time to use our batch service contact attachment feature to get your preferred service contact attached to all your cases. In addition to finding your Lake county cases, this will catch any other open cases you may not have your private service contact attached to yet in any e-filing county.

We have a quick video showing you how it works if you click on this link.
Note: Public service contacts are now available in your service contact tools as well!


For more information about how private and public service contacts may affect you, visit our initial and follow up blog posts linked below:

Wells and Miami County Converts to Odyssey- Your Doxpop Access is Unaffected.


During the weekend of December 1st, the Courts in Wells & Miami County will convert to the Odyssey case tracking system, this means their Case Management System is now administered by Indiana Trial Court Technology.

This move does not affect Doxpop users because Doxpop buys access to a real-time feed of court data from the Odyssey system from the Division of State Court Administration. Your access to Wells and Miami County court information through Doxpop will not be interrupted during this transition. Wells County e-filers, please read this post regarding e-file during the transition. 

A few of the services we provide will look odd during the transition because there will be a four-six week period when both the old data and the new data are available. This is longer than when this transition typically happens due to the holidays. In particular:
  • If you use the personal calendar feature to keep track of hearings connected to your Bar ID, you will see two colors for Wells or Miami County on your calendar. Every event will be available, but the older cases will have a different color from the newer cases. When we complete the merge process, these will go back to being a single color.
  • When you look at our "County Details Page", you will find two entries for each court until the merge is complete.
  • When you are doing searches, you will find two entries for some cases. This is because while we are loading the information from Odyssey, we will also be maintaining the old data until the operation is complete to ensure you don't miss anything. When you see two case entries, please look at both to ensure you have the most current information.
  • If you use any of our "watch" services to keep an eye on cases or people of interest, we will be moving those watches over so they point to the cases and people that are a part of the Odyssey data feed. We run a process to convert these every hour, but it is possible for notification of events to slip through the cracks between conversion runs so you may want to periodically do a manual check between now and January 14th. After then, we'll be back to normal.
Tax warrants will not be affected at all by this transition.

Finally, one deficiency in the Odyssey system is that financial information is not exported in their data feed, so that detail will not be available after the transition. We regularly ask that TCT add this to the data feed, but so far, we are told that it is not allowed because the clerks using the Odyssey system have requested that TCT not make that information available to us. If this information is important to you, please encourage the clerks you work with to tell TCT differently so we can get the information back online.

As always, we are available to answer any questions in person, so don't hesitate to call support at 866-369-7671 if you have any questions.

Wells county e-filing: Important information while they transition to the Odyssey case management system.


Wells County will begin a transition to the Odyessy case management system on November 29th.

This transition will have a limiting effect on e-filing through the weekend. Here is the notice that was provided by the state court administration regarding this transfer:
--
Beginning THU, NOV 29 at 4:00pm through SAT, DEC 1 at 1:00pm, you will be able to e-file only into Wells cases in which you have e-filed before. Filings into other cases or that open a new case will not be possible during this time.
--
If you need to file into a Wells case and it does not pull up in e-file you will have to file it directly with the clerk. The same process will apply for any new cases.

This transition will only affect e-filing temporarily.

All other court case information and Doxpop features will remain unaffected.
