Make sure you get our e-mails for the Court!
To prevent SPAM, e-mail services now have special features that can be set according to your preferences. Internet providers like AOL, Yahoo!, and MSN Hotmail have developed SPAM filters to give you greater control over what e-mails are delivered to you. Unfortunately, these filters can sometimes block e-mails you wish to receive, unless you add them to your e-mail address book.
When you registered with the court, you supplied an e-mail address which will be utilized when sending out all court documents as they relate to you.
Some Internet Service Providers (ISP) may not be able to process these e-mail attachments thus tagging them as either Spam or Viruses. It is important for you to include the domain in your address book, in order to ensure receipt of e-mails. If you need to communicate with the court electronically please use our free 'e-filing' procedure. You should add the domain to your 'safe-list', 'white-list', or address book to ensure these emails do not 'bounce off' of any filters in place by your ISP. For instructions specific to your ISP please browse the following links:
