There’s a tremendous amount of administrative work that goes on behind the scenes of a court case.
On the one hand, high-profile testimonies and landmark rulings get most of the spotlight — often eliciting strong emotions from concerned parties and spectators. Meanwhile, court filings and document submissions to the clerk of a court rarely stir the senses, but these seemingly mundane tasks help form the backbone of a strong case.
Why Court Filing is Necessary
Submitting key legal documents to the clerk is essential for the court to act on a case. Before any motion is considered, courts must first receive the necessary memorandum or brief, which will help inform their decision.
However, many people consider the court filing process to be tedious and rightly so. Parties on either side of the case will need to visit the clerk in person and comply with all filing requirements and fees. This can be quite a time-consuming process which can span for several days.
Fortunately, service of process agencies like, Serve Index LLC, can assist you and remove the hassle out of the court filing process. We can take this administrative task out of your hands and ensure that all your court documents are properly submitted.
What Modes of Filing are Available for You
We make filing legal forms and papers easy for our clients. Whether it’s a federal, state, family or civil case, we can file legal documents on your behalf through two options: in-person or electronic filing.
With in-person court filing, we’ll just need to acquire the documents from you and submit them to the relevant court (e.g. Surrogate’s Court, New York City Civil Court). Additionally, we can purchase an index number if needed and hand in the papers to the clerk of the court.
Electronic filing or e-filing is also possible through our services. While not every county accommodates e-filing, the service is becoming increasingly available in several New York counties, such as the Bronx, Westchester, Rockland, Orange, and Putnam. This method has several benefits, such as the following:
- Legal documents can be submitted even when courts are not yet open to the public.
- Significantly faster than in-person filing.
- Secure access to case files 24/7.
- Digital storage of important documents significantly reduces the risk of loss or damage.
- Helps save paper, as well as courier and noticing fees.
- Some databases can send a notice via email when there is progress made on a case.
Whichever method of court filing you choose, you can take comfort in the thought that you don’t have to do it yourself. Our team here at Serve Index LLC will take care of submitting everything.
