Notice: Tyler Odyssey eFile & Serve will NOT be available for eFiling after 4:30 p.m. on Friday, December 15, 2017. 

Oakland County's eFiling is hosted by MiFILE, Powered by TrueFiling, where court documents of the 6th Judicial Circuit Court shall be eFiled.

Beginning Monday, December 18, 2017 at 7:00 a.m. EST, eFiling will be available through TrueFiling at https://mifile.courts.michigan.gov.  Previous TrueFiling users do not need to register again. However, service contacts and payment accounts will need to be added to the Oakland County cases.

Below are a few notable changes to the new MiFILE:

  • Every filer must register. A filer can "connect" with other users to file on behalf of others, to share filing history, and to share payment accounts.
  • If Service is selected during file submission, service on the selected parties is made at the time of submission. The system will generate a Proof of Service document that will be filed into the court file.
  • Payment is applied to the filer's credit card at the time of submission - if a document is rejected, the payment will be refunded.
  • The submitted dated will appear as the "received for filing" time stamped date of the document.
  • Filing deadlines are extended to midnight - documents submitted after midnight on Friday will be accepted as of 8:00 a.m. the following morning.
  • Statutory document filing fees are subject to a credit card transaction fee up to 3% - all other documents will not be charged any fees.

More information regarding MiFILE is available at http://www.mifile.info/ and through our frequently asked questions.
