When a request is sent by e-mail, a return e-mail indicating that the request has been received will be sent by office personnel during office hours. The return e-mail will serve as proof of delivery of the request. For requests sent by mail, office personnel will date the request when it is received. These procedures will be followed in all cases to ensure compliance with the statutory deadlines and uniformity.
For disposition letters and public records, you will receive a response to your request within five days. If a fee is required, an invoice letter will be provided. Our Office only accepts money orders or Law Firm Checks. If the fee is not paid within 30 days of the invoice letter date, the request will be closed, and a new public records request will be necessary. For requests of extensive public records or those requiring redaction, you will receive an initial response within five days, but a production estimate will be provided on a case-by-case basis.
