PAPER COPIES BY MAIL:
You may also submit your request in writing, but there will be a search fee in addition to the cost of the copies. You may specify in writing the documents you would like to have copied, and we will send you a reply stating the amount of the copy fee dependent on the number of pages in the particular filing. Your copies will be made upon receipt of payment. You may also call the court at (859) 233-2608 to determine in advance the number of pages contained in your copy request and the total amount you need to mail. You would then need to submit payment by mail or in person.
