Personal Information

Other things to consider:

  • Use an e-mail address you check often.
  • The e-mail address you use here will be visible to all the other parties in any case you participate in using this account.
  • Use an e-mail address that only you can access. Be careful if you share an e-mail address with someone else, or if someone else has your password. If another person checks the e-mail address and deletes or moves a MiFILE notification, you could miss important information about your case.
  • If you need an e-mail address or want to create a different e-mail address to use just for e-filing, you can get one for free on many websites, including Gmail, Outlook, and Yahoo.
  • If you are concerned about the other party accessing your e-mail, start by reading Safety and Privacy When Using Electronic Devices for Legal Matters. You may consider setting up a separate e-mail address used solely for e-filing.
  • If you still have privacy or safety concerns, you can ask for an exemption from e-filing. To learn more about getting an exemption, read What Is E-filing?
  • The street address you use when signing up will not be displayed to anyone who accesses MiFILE unless that address is used in a document that is filed with the court.
