Documents in your case may include filings made by you or your attorney, filings by the opposing party, or documents issued by the court. Depending on the case type and the content, the document may or may not be considered confidential. As a result, some documents in some case types are available online, while others are not.
- If you need any documents in the case that are not available online, or if you cannot find your case there, you can request the documents from the clerk in the county where your case is heard. Get contact information for your clerk’s office from our Court Directory.
- If you are represented by an attorney, you can ask your attorney to retrieve the documents for you. Attorneys have more document access than public visitors to https://mycase.in.gov. This is possible because they are licensed by and registered with the Indiana Supreme Court.
- If you are representing yourself in a case (also called “pro se”), you can access the public documents available at https://mycase.in.gov, and you can request them from the clerk’s office. Currently, there is not a way for you to sign into MyCase for additional document access, but this is a possibility that is being researched for the future.
As a pro se filer, if you e-file in your case—and if the opposing party is e-filing—you can receive the documents filed by the other party electronically. In most courts, you can also include an email address on your appearance form to receive e-notices when the court issues a document in the case.
In Indiana, the courts are open to everyone. As the Supreme Court considers how to best balance access with privacy and security, it is involving a wide range of individuals to provide guidance. The Remote Access Task Force meets regularly to discuss these issues and make recommendations to the Court: http://www.in.gov/judiciary/iocs/3147.htm
