Notice of Appeal

Effective July 1, 2017

Beginning July 1, 2017, all Notices of Appeal filed with the Court of Appeals, Court of Criminal Appeals or Supreme Court must be filed in the office of the Clerk of the Appellate Courts rather than in the office of the Trial Court Clerk. The Rules of Appellate Procedure related to the filing of a Notice of Appeal directed to the Appellate Courts are changing effective July 1, 2017. As of July 1, 2017, the trial court clerks will no longer accept a Notice of Appeal for filing in their office.
