Can I file my own court papers? If so, how?
Yes, you may file your own documents. You may use pre-prepared forms or draft your own documents. Before your paperwork can be filed, it must be approved by the Compliance Department. Once your paperwork is approved, the Compliance Department will forward your paperwork to the Clerk of Courts for filing. A fee may be required.

Visit the Forms page for pre-prepared forms. Visit the Self-Represented Parties page for detailed information on the filing and compliance processes.
