In order to receive notifications when an attorney filing has been received, accepted, rejected, etc., you must be added as a connection to the attorney MiFILE account. To do this, both the attorney and the legal assistant/paralegal create individual accounts in MiFILE. From the attorney account, connect the legal assistant/paralegal account as a Connection. This is done under Settings, Connections. The legal assistant/paralegal must confirm this connection in their own personal account.
Once the connection is established correctly, the legal assistant/paralegal will now be listed as an Active Connection. Next, select the notification options located under “notification settings” in both accounts by checking boxes as to what types of notifications each user is to receive.
YOU MUST ALSO CHECK THE BOX TO THE LEFT OF THE PERSON’S NAME UNDER NOTIFICATIONS to be included in the cc emails.
When filing a document, please also ensure that the additional person(s) you wish to have notified is(are) listed for service. If you do not see their information, you may add recipients by clicking on "add myself/connected user". Once the recipient is included in the list "Select Service Recipients", you may select all (circled below) by clicking the box next to the word "all". This will place a check-mark next to each recipient’s name. Or, you may select a single recipient by selecting the box associated with their name next to the "service type". In the example below, the first 3 recipients will receive notice.
