Personnel of the Macomb County Clerk's Office are not attorneys and thus are forbidden by law to give legal advice. Assistance with filling out forms in most instances constitutes legal advice.

 

 

Make sure all forms are filled out completely prior to filing. If you are filing in person and your paperwork is not complete, it will be necessary to step out of line to finish your paperwork so our deputy clerks can assist other customers.

 

 

Filing of court papers may be done in person, by mail, or by utilizing our fax filing service. Please make sure to include a self-addressed stamped envelope for return of any date stamped copies when filing by mail. To use our fax filing service, click the following link for the form and instructions: Circuit Court Fax Filing Service
