Judicial Branch ShareFile Program Expanding to More Courts

Date: 5/20/2022

The Maine Judicial Branch announced today that the number of courts using the online file exchange program, Citrix ShareFile, continues to grow. Last month, district and superior courts in Region 7 and 8, (Hancock, Washington, and Aroostook counties) began accepting filings in criminal, civil violation, and juvenile cases using the program, joining the superior court and district courts in Region 1 (York County). Filings will also continue to be accepted by traditional means, i.e., by filing in person or via the U.S. Postal Service. Courts in Region 2 (Cumberland County) are scheduled to begin accepting filings on May 23. Attorneys and legal assistants may watch a short video on how to register at: https://www.courts.maine.gov/courts/sharefile/index.html and may pre-register now.

ShareFile was launched as a pilot program in January 2022. It will continue to be evaluated to assess its efficacy and may be expanded to additional courts if warranted. See Administrative Order JB-21-06, Order Regarding Using ShareFile Pilot (revised effective May 23, 2022).
