Signing In or Creating an Account

Signing in to the portal

The sign in form on the Courts Portal has a link for "Trouble signing in?" that you can visit to recover your login credentials.Sign into the portal with any combination of:

  • Email or user ID - This can be your email address, the username you chose when you created your account, or a number the Supreme Court assigned to you, such as an attorney number, mediator number, or judicial branch ID number. If you sign in with a number, make sure to include the hyphen (e.g., 12345-67).
  • Password or PIN - This can be the password you chose or the PIN assigned to you by the Supreme Court

If you aren't able to remember your password, click the "Trouble signing in?" link to do one of the following:

  • Reset my password - Type the email address you use to sign into the portal, and you'll receive a temporary password in that inbox within a few minutes
  • Send my PIN - Provide your ID number and follow the prompts to have your PIN mailed or emailed to you. If you choose email, it may take up to 30 minutes for the email to arrive.
  • Answer security questions - Type the email address you use to sign into the portal, and you'll be presented with the security questions you chose when you created your account (or when you last updated them)
Note that the email address you sign into the portal with may not be the same email you've provided in your Roll of Attorneys or Mediator record. Also, if you received an email about annual registration, it may not be the same email we sent the message to. It depends on which email address you provided in your portal account and which email addresses you provided in your attorney or mediator record as well as your messaging preferences.

Creating an account

To create an account, go to http://portal.courts.in.gov/ and click the "Create an Account" button. Follow the prompts on the screen to choose a password and security questions. You will receive a confirmation email when your account has been successfully created.

To register for the clerk's portal, you must:

  • have an Indiana bar number, mediator number, non-attorney judge number, or a judicial branch ID number, OR
  • be invited to register as an account administrator by an attorney, mediator or judge with an existing account
Information you'll need on hand

If you are an attorney, mediator, judge, or anyone assigned a judicial branch ID number, you will need:

  • your Indiana bar number, mediator number, non-attorney judge number, or judicial branch ID number
  • the PIN number assigned to you by the Supreme Court, AND
  • a valid email address not shared with another user of the portal

If you are an invited account administrator, you will need:

Number Format

When creating your account, or when using the "Forgot Username" or "Forgot Password" links on the sign-in screen, you may be prompted to enter your attorney number, your non-attorney judge number, your mediator number, or your judicial branch ID number.

Attorney numbers include a sequence number (usually one to six digits), a hyphen, and the two-digit county number.  Some attorney numbers used to include letters at the end, but the use of these letters has been discontinued (see our FAQ for more information on this). When entering your attorney number, you must include the hyphen, otherwise the portal will not recognize the number.  Examples of correctly formatted attorney numbers include:

  • 12345-67
  • 1234-56
  • 123-45

Non-attorney judge numbers are formatted in the same way as attorney numbers, but also include an NA at the end.  Include the hyphen and the NA suffix when entering your non-attorney judge number.

Mediator numbers do not include hyphens and should be entered without them.
