What is the procedure for submitting documents to the court?

You should submit for filing with the Clerk of Court an original of motions or pleadings. It is your responsibility to maintain copies of whatever you have filed with the court for your own records. If you should need copies of a document you have filed, the cost is $.50 a page. Any costs must be paid in advance. You may file pleadings with the court in person or by mail.

The Clerk's Office is open to the public from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except on federal holidays.

Important Note: When you submit a document to the court, you must also mail or deliver a copy of the document to the opposing party's attorney, or, if the opposing party has no attorney, to the opposing party directly. As an attachment to your document, you must include a certificate of service that states the date that you mailed or delivered a copy of the document to the opposing party or their attorney and the address to which you mailed or delivered the document.
