Some St. Clair County eFiling Guidelines:

  • Exhibits must be attached to a pleading to be accepted through Odyssey. Exhibits will not be accepted separately.
  • When filing into an existing case, please make sure the case number format has the last two (2) numbers of the year the case was filed, alpha characters of the case type and ends with four digits. (Example: 19-SC-0527, 17-LM-3245).
  • Pursuant to Supreme Court requirements, the St. Clair County Circuit Clerk’s Office has public eFiling computer terminals for court patrons to use during Office business hours.  All are welcome to use this resource.  

Please contact Circuit Clerk Kahalah A. Clay at or 618-825-2323 if you have any questions or concerns.
