ACTION REQUIRED: YOU MUST RECONNECT YOUR CASES
A recent update to the MiFILE system may disconnect your name and email address from your case. This means you will not be e-Served with documents in the case until you reconnect to your case. To reconnect:
  • Find your case, either by doing a search or reviewing your TrueFiling History.
  • On the Case Details Page, look for the "I am this Person" button to the right of your name and click on it.
  • If there is no "I am this Person" button, you are already connected to an email address. To confirm that it is the email address you used for e-Service in your case, go to the Upload Filings screen, select "Serve Document," and review "Select Recipients" pane.
