General Information

Contacting the Judge

Please understand that the judge cannot talk to you about your case. This is called an ex-parte communication and is prohibited by ethical rules that the Court must follow. Court staff also cannot talk with you other than to discuss settings and then only if you are representing yourself. If you are represented by an attorney, the staff will speak only with your attorney.

Obtaining Copies of Documents and Checking the Status of an Order

All records are managed and preserved by the District Clerk's Office of the particular county.  They will also know the status of any document you have e-filed. Please reach out to them for copies or status updates on orders.
