Can the Clerk's Office or Court personnel advise me how I should proceed with my case?

  1. Explain the meaning of a specific rule
  2. Describe what the best procedures are to accomplish a particular objective (e.g., How do I subpoena a witness in a case?)
  3. Answer whether the filing of a complaint is timely
  4. Giving instructions on how to execute a task (i.e., number of copies, scheduling a hearing, use of forms, etc.)
