About Service Bureau


The LawNet Service Bureaux,now known as Service Bureau was set up in 1994 to provide a range of support services to enable less technology-savvy citizens to gain easy access to publicly available information and transact with the government agencies more efficiently. Designed to provide full-fledged bureaux services, the centres are equipped with established infrastructure, audited processes and workflows. A team of well-trained staff with unique domain expertise is readily available to render reliable and effective customer support.

Support Services for the Legal Community Service Bureau support services were extended to the legal community after CrimsonLogic was appointed to operate the Electronic Filing System (EFS) and LawNet services in 1997 and 1992 respectively.

Conveniently located, State Courts and Supreme Court Service Bureaux offer small firms an opportunity to access the e-services offered by the Supreme Court Singapore, State Courts of Singapore and Singapore Academy of Law, without subscribing to them.

For a reasonable fee, litigants-in-person can tap on the expertise of the service bureaux to file the requisite documents to the Courts to commence an action.
