HAMILTON – The Ravalli County District Court is making some changes. Starting this week, the clerk’s office is transitioning to online case management systems. This is the court’s first step filing everything online.

Online case files will give people better access to court documents.

Ravalli County files more than 2,000 cases, and 240 marriage licenses, every year.

There may be delays in service and response over the next couple of weeks. You still can access your documents during this time, but the court is asking people to hold off on filing new documents, applying for marriage licenses, and opening new cases until June 17.

Clerk of District Court Paige Trautwein says this will help ensure a smooth transition to the new services.

“We’re asking people that need passports to go to the post office and then come back to us. Marriage licenses, if people could hold off for the two week conversion process we would greatly appreciate that.”

Court filings submitted this Thursday June 6, and Friday, June 7 will not be processed until next week. They will be booked manually until the new system is in place. For more information call the Ravalli District clerks office.
