UNION, W.Va. (AP) - Electronic court filing is expanding in West Virginia.

Next in line is Monroe County Circuit Court, with a formal announcement scheduled next week. It will join two other counties already using the so-called e-filing system - Marion and Jefferson counties.

The system was established in May 2014. Under it, anyone seeking to file a case in a circuit court would be able to do so themselves. Self-represented litigants would still be able to give paper documents to the clerk’s office to scan and file.

The West Virginia Judiciary’s Unified Electronic Filing System is planned to go statewide. The judiciary says the system will be paid for by users, not taxpayers.
