The County Clerk's Office makes every reasonable effort not to reject filings. Many times a complimentary call will be made to the attorney in order to not reject the filing. However, a call due to the volume of filings, is not always possible. Please note some issues are with the eFile system and thus not within the County Clerk's control. Please take note the County Clerk has modified the rule requirements regarding email addresses on specific documents submitted to our office for filing (see for home page further information).
