Judge Ralph Winkler is pleased to announce the initiation of a new E-Filing system in the Hamilton County Probate Court. Utilizing the latest in web development technologies, the court can now accept funds and filings electronically via the Internet at https://efile.probatect.org/.
This new process will save time and money for the public and the court. In this first phase, the system will be available to attorneys and for filings on current estate cases only. Also, funds can be electronically added to all case types as part of this first phase. The next phase of the project will include additional Probate case types, will open the system up to non-attorney filers, and will allow for originating cases.
This new E-filing system will allow filers to upload documents (PDF) they have created or modified from their home or office computers to the Court’s case management system. In addition, using a credit card, users can add money to the case deposits for use in future filings.
It is the Court’s hope that ultimately, attorneys and members of the public will be able to conduct much of their business with the court from the comfort and convenience of their office or home – saving them time and money. We anticipate that this will also result in a time and money savings for the court.
This is yet another step in Judge Winkler’s mission to improve efficiency and reduce costs of the Probate Court using technology.
