Filing Instructions

The filing instructions are listed in alphabetical order.  Those denoted with a right triangle beside them have sub menus for like-kind events (i.e., Motions).  You can also use the Search this site box located in the upper right-hand corner of this page to search for a specific filing event with its instructions. 

CM/ECF Events - When docketing a pleading, if you cannot find an appropriate event, if events available do not describe your pleading or relief you are seeking, or if an event needs more functionality for you to e-file a document, please click here to send an e-mail describing your problem to the CM/ECF Event Help mailbox and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.  This e-mail address was set up to enable attorneys and their staff to provide prompt feedback to the clerk's office so these issues can be addressed promptly and consistently.

Please Note:  Requests for new events or modifications to existing events will not occur immediately or may not be possible.  A member of the clerk's office staff may contact you to discuss the specifics of your request.
