General instructions to help ensure your case is filed without errors:

These court rules are posted for informational purposes only

- If you are requesting a specific Court within a County for case creation, the filing document should indicate which Court is requested. If the filing document does not have an indication, the filing will be processed in accordance with local rules for that case type within the specific County.

- Each filing must have a Filing Code, Document, and Related Party selected. The related party indicates the party filing the pleading. The related party shows in the case management system as the "filed by" party. Exhibits should be filed as attachments to the original filing code.

- Each filing must contain one lead document. If the lead document is too large, the document can be filed in sections using the attachment option. Document size should be limited to 25MB.  An envelope cannot be larger than 35MB.

- If you are filing a document, such as a summons or letters, that requires updating by the Clerk, the filer must select the Proposed Notice filing code. The documents should be attached as lead documents. Do not attach proposed notice documents to other pleadings.

- Each pleading should be its own Filing Code with appropriate documents attached. For example, an appearance should be a separate filing code and not part of the initial petition filed.

- If you are filing a proposed order with a motion, the proposed order must be submitted using a separate filing code called "Proposed Order." The proposed order will be the lead document on that filing code. Do not attach a proposed order to other pleadings.
