Register of Wills Office goes ‘green’ with new paperless E-filing service

GEORGETOWN – The Sussex County Register of Wills Office has a new e-filing system that allows attorneys to file most important paperwork electronically as well as allowing them to pay fees online.

“I’m enthusiastic about anything that saves time and money, especially when we use less paper,” said Register of Wills Cindy Green.

The e-filing system comes with no cost to the taxpayers. Most law firms use the system and pay fees that cover the costs to implement it.

“It’s a win, win, win,” exclaimed Ms. Green. “Everyone benefits: from the attorneys, to the tax payers, to the grieving families that use this office.”
The new system, File & ServeXpress™, is widely used by the legal community as a secure way to electronically file documents.

File & ServeXpress™ went live at the Sussex County Register of Wills office on July 1, 2015.

The new e-filing system is functioning smoothly thanks to the help of the folks at File & ServeXpress™.  They are based out of Irving, TX and have over 30 years of experience in the e-filing industry according to their website,  The system was installed and implemented by company representative Dean E. Merritt, Esq.  “Dean made the process so easy,” said Mrs. Green.  “He provided us with all the training and help we needed to run the system. The staff learned the system immediately and have not skipped a beat in waiting on customers.”
