Where Does Surety Bond Electronic Filing Stand in Illinois Courts?

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many court systems across the nation and in Illinois embraced digital transformations, allowing attorneys and law firms to file court documents electronically. Now that courtrooms are open again, many are wondering what it means for submitting court documents, including Surety Bonds.

Most counties in Illinois, including Cook County, have continued to allow electronic submission of Surety Bonds, though other court documents must again be original. However, in DuPage County, original paper Surety Bonds are still required.

Electronic Filing in Cook County and beyond:

Even after the COVID-19 pandemic, Cook County and most other counties continue to accept electronic filing of Surety Bonds, allowing attorneys to submit their Surety Bonds conveniently and efficiently. This digital approach for Surety Bonds has been welcomed by all parties and is expected to continue.
