Small Claims documents can be faxed directly to DTS - see the fax number in Civil Local Rule 19  as well as information on any applicable fees for fax filing. Documents in Civil cases will be accepted with fax signatures but cannot be faxed directly to the Court. Documents may be submitted in hard copy either through the mail or brought to the courthouse or you may use a fax filing agency to deliver your faxed documents to the Court.
