What is compliance?
The Compliance Department reviews all pro se paperwork submitted for filing to ensure it complies with the rules of law in Ohio, as well as the Court's Local Rules.

Approved paperwork is forwarded to the Clerk of Courts for filing. Paperwork that is not approved is returned to the pro se litigant who submitted it with a list of corrections that must be made. The cycle of review and revision can be lengthy, but will continue until all documents comply with the applicable laws and rules.
