Issuing and Filing Court Documents


We would be happy to issue and/or file documents on your behalf at any courthouse. For Supreme Court, please include a cover letter addressed to the Prothonotary. Supreme Court administration staff may refuse to issue or file documents without a cover letter. The cover letter should include clear instructions such as: who you are, who you represent, indication that the out-of-Province lawyer has mobility, what you want the court administration staff to do, and include any file or reference numbers etc. The Prothonotary's office can be reached at 902-424-6901 if you have any questions.

Please include a cheque for filing fees made out to the court in the exact amount. If you are not sure what the costs and fees are, you can go to the Courts of Nova Scotia website.
