The regular business hours of the Clerk’s Office are 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday (excluding Federal Holidays). The drop box/document depository may be used for filing before the Clerk’s Office opens at 8:30 a.m. and after the office closes at 4:30 p.m. The box is located at the south entrance of the Cleveland Building.
Documents deposited without a date and time stamp will be deemed filed on the date the documents are collected by court staff.
Documents, not just the envelope, must be date/time stamped.
Follow the instructions below to stamp and file your documents:
- Insert the document you are filing into the top opening. Push until you feel the date and time stamp being applied.
- Verify the document has a legible date and time stamp. If it is not legible, stamp again on the reverse side of the document.
- Place the document (and applicable fee, not cash) in an envelope and deposit in the "document depository" opening.
