Type your Lucas County General Division Case Number according to the following format: G-4801-CI-0202301234-000The CI for Civil cases may be replaced with CR for Criminal, TF for Tax Foreclosure, CL for Court of Appeals. The filing year should always be preceded and followed by a 0 (zero) and the dashes must be present in the indicated places. In only rare cases will the extension -000 contain other digits.
Because the current eFiling system is not integrated with our current Case Management System any existing case that has no eFilings in the current eFile Ohio system will need to be entered as the first eFiling is requested.
This phase is temporary while the Clerk and Court work with Tyler Technologies to implement a case management system at which point the case data will populate seamlessly.
Tyler technical support will support eFilers when there are technical issues with the eFile Ohio website. You can reach them at 1-800-297-5377.
