Approved Statewide Forms - Supreme Forms

The following forms have been approved for use by the Supreme Court Commission on Access to Justice and are required to be accepted in all Illinois courts. The forms are ADA accessible, and you can handwrite or type into the PDF form.

You will need Adobe Acrobat or free Adobe Reader XI or higher in order to save completed forms.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  As of July 1, 2017, all documents filed in the Illinois Supreme Court must be filed electronically (“e-filed”).  You cannot file in any other way, and any instructions that describe other ways are not up to date.

To e-file, you must create an account with an e-filing service provider. Visit to select a service provider. Some are free, while others charge a fee. For instructions on how to e-file for free with Odyssey eFileIL, see Odyssey File & Serve: Individual Filer User Guide here: 16579/HTML-5-Individual-Filer-User-Guide-20170

If you do not have access to a computer, or if you need additional help, you may take your documents to the supreme court clerk’s office, where you can use a public terminal to e-file your documents. You can bring your documents on a flash drive or on paper. The terminal will have a scanner where you can scan, save, and then use the computer to e-file your documents.
