For small claims court cases using the WI Efiling system, you should create a filing agent eCourt account. The steps for creating a filing agent account can be found on the eCourt website.
Filing Agent eCourt Account
A filing agent is an individual that is not a lawyer filing a case on behalf of a business or corporation in a small claims court case. When registering for a WI Efiling eCourt account you will register the account in your name. However, when you are filing the case in the WI Efiling system, you will list the business or corporation as the plaintiff or defendant for the case.
