Maine eCourts and eFiling Expands to Rumford, Farmington, and South Paris Courts

Date: 4/1/2024

The next implementation of Maine eCourts and eFiling begins today for most family and civil case types in Rumford, Farmington, and South Paris District Courts, and Franklin and Oxford County Superior Courts.

Maine eCourts is a suite of applications and web-based tools using Tyler Technologies' Enterprise Justice Solutions. The new case management and eFiling system is replacing MEJIS, the Judicial Branch's aging docketing system, and paper-based court files and processes.

Attorneys, governmental agencies, and others who file more than six court cases in a calendar year are now required to electronically file in these courts. Protection from abuse, protection from harassment, juvenile, criminal, and civil violations cases continue to be filed in paper. Self-represented litigants are not required to eFile.

Mandatory eFilers including attorneys or law firm staff must register on eFileMaine to electronically file. Virtual training sessions, informational recordings and instructional documentsarelocated on the Training & Resources page of the Maine Judicial Branch website. The Judicial Branch offers process related support for eFilers by email at ecourtshelp@courts.maine.govand by telephone at (207) 213-2813 Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Technical and product support is offered by Tyler Technologies on their user support page.

Accessing Electronic Court Records
re:SearchMaine is the new online search tool to access electronic case records, replacing the Maine eCourts Odyssey Portal. Attorneys and parties can access their own electronic case documents on re:SearchMaine. Members of the public can search and view the Registry of Action (ROA), that lists court events, for public cases that have been electronically filed. More information on how to access court records can be found on theAccessing Electronic Court Records web page.

The first phase of Maine eCourts was implemented in 2018 for traffic cases statewide, followed by the Bangor District Court, Penobscot County Superior Court, the statewide Business and Consumer Docket (BCD) in 2020, and the Lewiston District Court and Androscoggin Superior Court in 2023.
