PLEASE NOTE:

 

Your attention is called to that portion of R.S. 13:842 which reads in part: “Whenever the costs have exhausted the amount of the original advance deposit, the Clerk may refuse to perform any further function in the proceeding until the additional costs for that function have been paid.”

 

ALL COURT COSTS MUST BE CURRENT AND A BOND POSTED PRIOR TO ALL FIXINGS. IF A CASE IS COUNTESTED OR LENGHTY, PLEASE ADD ADDITIONAL MONIES TO AVOID REPEATED BILLING.

 

ALL COURT COSTS MUST BE PAID BEFORE THE JUDGE SIGNS A DISMISSAL OR JUDGMENT UNLESS THE SUIT IS FILED IN FORMA PAUPERIS.

 

ALL MOTIONS, ORDERS AND JUDGMENTS MUST BE MARKED FILED BY THE CLERK’S OFFICE PRIOR TO PRESENTATION TO THE JUDGES FOR THEIR SIGNATURE.

 

PLEASE TELEPHONE THIS OFFICE PRIOR TO FILING DOCUMENTS IN AN EXISTING SUIT TO INSURE YOU HAVE SUFFICIENT FUNDS.
