New Features on the Clerk's Portal for 2014
New releases of the Clerk of Courts Portal were published on July 20 and May 4, 2014. New features now available on the Portal include:
July 20, 2014
Attorneys will now verify their email address(es) with the Clerk's Office by responding to an automated email that is sent to the attorney's inbox from the Clerk's email. The email is sent by the Clerk when an attorney provides a new email address, updates an existing email address, or clicks a button to manually initiate the confirmation. The attorney must then click a link in the email to complete the process. This new step will help ensure that attorneys enter a valid email address into the Roll of Attorneys and that the attorneys' email service providers aren't blocking mail from the Clerk's office. The purpose of this change is to reduce the risk that attorneys will fail to receive appellate orders and opinions in their cases and important notifications from the Clerk, such as those related to annual attorney registration. For detailed instructions on confirming email addresses, see our help topic on attorney contact information.
In addition, we now accept Visa and Mastercard for credit card payments, but no longer accept American Express.
May 4, 2014
Registered mediators in Indiana can now use the portal to update their information with the Commission for Continuing Legal Education, including:
- Update contact information such as address, email, and phone number
- Indicate in what languages they can provide service
- Add or update practice information for both civil and domestic violence mediators, such as number of cases, locations served, and specific practice areas
- Pay annual registry fees
Much of the information provided on the portal about each mediator is displayed on the public mediator search at https://courtapps.in.gov/mediatorsearch.
Attorneys who are also mediators can now access these features by signing into their existing Portal account. Mediators who are not also attorneys need to create accounts on the Portal to access these services.
