Make check payable to:
The cost is $.50/page (in 2005). These documents can be very lengthy & some pages may not be needed for your purposes. For this reason, the Clerk of Court encourages you to come to the court house to view the document before ordering. Considering the distance I would have to travel, the travel costs far outweigh the cost of multiple pages. For others like myself, call the Clerk of Court & ask how best to order by snail mail when the cost is not known.
