The Cook County courts allow a 298 Petition document type ONLY for indigent filers (typically a Pro Se); filers who are applying for or whom the court has already granted a waiver of court filing fees.

Additionally, filers who do not quality for the 298 Petition will want to type the word Petition or Complaint in the document type field. This enables the system to filter document type choices to something that the filer may find better works for them.
