The clerk of court accepts fax filing of any pleading pursuant to La. R.S. 13:850. Note that a “receipt of transmission” must be transmitted by the clerk to the sender in order to complete the filing, and that the original pleading and appropriate fees must be received within seven days (exclusive of legal holidays) of the transmission.
24th Civil Filings should be faxed to (504) 364-3780. Fax filings can be emailed to FaxFileCivil24@jpclerkofcourt.us. Emailed faxes should contain a single PDF attachment containing all pages for the filing. If there is a problem transmitting to that number, fax to (504) 364-2988. Use the latter number only if there is a problem with the prior number.
24th Criminal Filings should be faxed to (504) 364-3797. Fax filings can be emailed to FaxFileCriminal24@jpclerkofcourt.us. Emailed faxes should contain a single PDF attachment containing all pages for the filing.
***Pleadings and other documents intended for filing, or which must be entered into the record (ex. a request for or notice of continuance of a matter, notice of settlement of a case, etc.), must be faxed to the clerk of court, not to the judges or the judicial administrator.***
