Online Document Filing Portal
In June of 2006, counties in Missouri agreed to create a portal that would allow the electronic filing of documents throughout Missouri. Currently, 40-plus counties in Missouri are accepting documents. This allows anyone E-Recording to go to one website to submit their documents for electronic recording, rather than visiting an individual site for each county.
Please contact our office if you are interested in electronic filing or have any questions.
