CIVIL FAQ

CERTIFIED MAILERS/SERVICE

This page will attempt to answer some of the more common Certified Mailers/Service questions.

While knowledgeable about the operational procedures of the Clerk's Office and the Court, Deputy Clerks and Bailiffs are not attorneys and cannot recommend specific legal options, and their answering questions should not be construed as such.
