No. The Transcript Order form must be completed and returned to the clerk’s office by e-mail, hand delivery, U.S. Mail, or similar carrier service.

No.  Unless otherwise ordered, it is the responsibility of the ordering party to pay for the transcripts to be used in the record on appeal.

Once your order is received, an estimate of the total cost will be prepared and you will be notified by the court reporter or recorder as to how much deposit is needed to start preparing your transcript. A deposit of 75% of the estimated total is required. You will be asked to send the deposit in the form of a check or money order payable directly to the court reporter or a transcription company. The court is unable to accept cash for a transcript.
