Once your order is received, an estimate of the total cost will be prepared. You will be notified by an Electronic Court Recording Operator (ECRO) as to how much deposit is needed to start preparing your transcript. A deposit of 75% of the estimated total is required. You will be asked to send the deposit in the form of a check or money order made payable to the transcription company or court reporter. The court is unable to accept cash for a transcript. Fees for transcripts belong to the transcription company or the court reporter, not the court.
Transcripts are not started and the time for delivery does not start to run until the deposit has been received.
