DUTIES OF THE CLERK AND MASTER
The clerk’s office is not permitted to provide you with legal advice, which includes not being able to tell you what forms to file, how to fill them out, or how to proceed with your case. If you have these types of questions, please consult with an attorney.
The same rules of court apply to a case whether it is filed by an attorney or by a person without legal training. We will accept any documents that you have prepared for filing, along with the appropriate filing fee, if required. Our accepting of documents does not imply that they are the correct form or that they are filled out properly. It is extremely important that pro se litigants read carefully and understand the pleadings that they are filing before filing anything with the Court.
