eFiling Spreads Throughout Wyoming State Courts

eFiling in Wyoming

Wyoming District Courts are moving to an electronic filing (eFiling) system hosted by File & ServeXpress. This is an ongoing gradual process. The process is staggered, district by district. It started with the Chancery Court a year and a half ago. The process has moved on to various district courts. As of late July, 2023, the following state district courts have moved to the eFiling system:

  • Albany County
  • Fremont County
  • Laramie County
  • Natrona County
  • Teton County
  • Sublette County

I have already utilized the eFiling system in Wyoming Chancery Court and in the First Judicial District Court in Laramie County, Wyoming. The system works fine. It is a little different from the CM/ECF or NexGen system in the U.S. District Courts. It is also different from the Colorado Courts e-filing system. Of the three e-filing systems I have utilized, I find the U.S. District Court's system most comfortable. That is probably because I have been using it the longest (20+ years). But the Wyoming eFiling system worked well. 

The eFiling system is a great boon for Wyoming practitioners. The State of Wyoming has a low population that is spread out very thinly across a wide expanse. There is added expanse and time in paper filing, especially when your particular court case is found well away from the law office. There are numerous stories of attorneys, or their staff, having to spend hours driving across snowy roads to timely file their pleadings in court on time. The eFiling system promises to remove that great travel obstacle to practicing law. This will help both law firms, and their clients.

I look forward to the spread of eFiling in Wyoming.
