Is it important to select the correct filing code?

Yes! It is very important to carefully choose the appropriate code prior to submitting your filing. Filing codes have been configured to have specific behaviors depending on what code you select. Petitions and other document that do not require the Judges signature, will be date stamped and put on the case as well as our public portal immediately. Proposed orders will be carefully reviewed by the clerk and once accepted will be routed to the Judge for signature. Selecting the wrong filing code may result in a rejection by the Circuit Clerks office, which would delay your filing.
