Union Circuit Civil: Foreclosures - Procedures

  • PROPOSED ORDERS for the Civil Division will no longer be accepted via e-filing by the Union County Clerk of Court.  Motions should continue to be e-filed with the Clerk's Office.
  • Final Judgment (FJ) proposed orders should be brought to the hearing with copies for conforming and envelopes (with sufficient postage) for service.  (See Administrative Order 1.07). 
  • When all parties can be e-served (except for FJs), the proposed order should be submitted to the Court (in Microsoft Word format) to GloverP@circuit8.org.  A courtesy copy of the motion, and a cover letter (if any), should accompany the proposed order.  If there are parties who have not consented to use of e-mail service, the proposed order, copies for conforming and stamped addressed envelopes should be mailed or hand delivered to the foreclosure case manager who will provide copies by U.S. Mail.  Orders will not be entered until the motion has been docketed and imaged by the Clerk.       
  • All orders shall have a 2" x 3.5" blank space on the first page of the order in the upper right-hand corner. An example of an order with this space requirement can be found here.
  • All orders shall include a certificate of service at the bottom of the order.  Please indicate the name of the party who is to receive the order, as well as that party's e-mail/e-service address OR mailing address, if a hard copy is required.
  • Requests for telephonic appearances are NOT routinely granted. Any request will be considered on a case-by-case basis and granted only in exceptional circumstances.  A motion for telephonic appearance must be filed with the Clerk of Court at least FIFTEEN BUSINESS DAYS before the hearing along with a copy e-mailed to GloverP@circuit8.org.
  • A copy of any “Emergency” motion e-filed with the Clerk of Court and served upon opposing counsel should be provided to the Magistrate’s office for review.  If the Court determines that a hearing should be granted, the foreclosure case manager will advise the moving party of an expedited date and time for the hearing.
  • The foreclosure case manager only accepts requests for hearing dates by e-mail.  All hearing requests should include the county name, full case number, style of the case, type of motion(s) being heard, the attorneys involved, and the amount of time requested.  Counsel should coordinate the hearing times prior to contacting the foreclosure case manager.   Once a date has been agreed upon, an e-mail should be sent to the foreclosure case manager confirming the date, and a courtesy copy of the notice of hearing e-mailed to the FCM.
