Once you have downloaded forms to your hard drive, open a form from its download location in your word processing program. Follow the appropriate directions as outlined below:
Microsoft Word: The gray areas in the form are fields where input is requested. To move from field to field, you can use the tab key or you can click with your mouse. To drop down a line within the field, hit the enter key. Check boxes can be filled in by clicking on them, using the space bar, or typing an x. As you move through the form, the fields will have a bold outline to indicate which is the current field. Some of the fields will covert your input to the proper date or font format, so don't be alarmed if an item reformats itself. Valid dates are required in the date fields. Please indicate a 4 digit year in the date fields in order to ensure that the correct year is recorded.
Acrobat PDFThe Acrobat forms may be printed out and completed by hand, or completed on your PC. Please note that if you are using the free Acrobat Reader software, you can fill out the form on your PC but you cannot save the form with the information that you entered. You must therefore print the form before exiting from Acrobat Reader, or you will lose all of the information you entered.
If you have the full version of Adobe Acrobat Reader software, you can save the form and the information that you have entered.
If you have any questions about the forms, please call the Appellate Division Clerk's Office at (609) 633-7082.
Once you have completed the Notice of Appeal, Case Information Statement, and Transcript Request form and saved those files (using a file name that is different from the name of the original file you downloaded), you must also scan and save an electronic copy of the judgement, order, or decision being appealed. The scanned copy should be saved in Microsoft Word or Acrobat PDF format. Once all 4 documents are ready to be sent, you may email them to the Appellate Division Clerk's Office using your browser's e-mail funtion or any other e-mail program.
Follow this link for instructions on transmitting your appeal documents through your own e-mail program.
If you have transmitted your files through our on-line transmittal form, a results summary page will be generated advising you that the data transmission was successful and indicating what information was transmitted. Please print or save a copy of this confirmation for your records. If you transmitted the files through your own e-mail program, please save a copy of the message in your mail program's "outbox" or "sent" box. If there are any deficiencies in your appeal documents, you will be contacted by the Appellate Division Clerk's Office and advised as to how you may correct same. Once the appeal is docketed, you will receive a Notice of Docketing by mail that states your docket number, the date the appeal was filed, and case manager in charge of your appeal.
