Ex Parte Matters




Cowlitz County Superior Court holds an Ex Parte docket on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8:30am.  All orders presented to the court for signature must have a case number assigned.  Documents may not be presented until a case is filed with the Clerk's office.

You may also obtain a Judge's signature by leaving documents with the Superior Court Clerk's office.  Paperwork left for presentation requires a Clerk's Service Fee of $30 pursuant to RCW 36.18.016(12).  The clerk will present your order along with the case file to the judge.  All copies will be conformed including date, judges signature, and any changes made to the document. 

If you choose to submit an order without paying the $30 fee, the case file will not be sent to the judge and copies of the order will not be available for up to (5) business days.  You may request certified copies of the order if copy costs are paid prior to obtaining the judges signature.  The clerk will not return any copies that are left without the appropriate fee included.

Be sure to provide a self addressed stamped envelope if you are requesting documents to be returned by mail.  We do not accept personal checks.
