Rollout Strategy Overview​

 ​Ho​​w is MiFILE being rolled out?
  • ​E-Filing pilot courts were transitioned to the MiFILE platform in 2018 and will be moved to the standard solution following implementation in model courts as part of eastern expansion. 

  • Model courts, ​37th District Court (Warren), Ottawa County Probate Court, and 22nd Circuit Court (Washtenaw County) are working with SCAO now to implement the standard solution as part of Wave 1.  As part of this process, SCAO has been working with courts via advisory workgroups and other methods to design the standard solution for each court type and every eligible case type.  Model courts will test the standard solution for these court types and continue to help SCAO refine the standard solution.
  • Remaining courts will be brou​ght onto MiFILE over the course of several years in waves, as depicted on the map below . As the project moves forward, SCAO will contact the courts in each wave about their timelines.  See what to expect at implementation

How were the implementation waves determined?

The implementation waves were determined by analyzing two key factors: geographic location and filing volumes. This methodology helps us to achieve uniformity for filers in the shortest period of time.

Will all case types be required to be e-Filed?

The long-term objective is for all eligible case types to be e-Filed.
