With the recent changes and fee increases affecting state court offices, we wanted to take a minute to address how this will affect the firms we work with.

We believe that part of what we do as a company is to put a necessary buffer between our clients and the operation issues that take place at the courts. Today, the Wake County Courthouse changed some of its basic procedures and increased fees. Up until now, when we have traveled to the courthouse with documents to file, we have been the ones personally filing and stamping the documents, however, now everything must be filed by a clerk.

The changes in procedure will mean that, in some situations, we will have to spend more time waiting to accomplish the things we were doing on our own before.

All of us at BlackDog have spent a lot of time and effort making relationships with clerks on both the civil and criminal sides. Our relationships with clerks will allow us to bypass certain problems and issues that will probably slow others down. We are extremely dedicated to keep any effects from the recent changes to a minimum.

We will also be posting all of the newly increased and updated fees on our site over the next few days.

If you have any issues or questions about the new procedures, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@blackdoglegal.com or 919-961-2195 and we will answer any questions you may have.
