Document Codes 2017-06-10T00:15:26+00:00

The Clerk of the Court requires DOCUMENT codes be placed on the first page of each document filed with the court as detailed in Court Rule EDCR 7.20.  Parties filing documents with the court must enter a document code in the left margin on Line 1 on the first page of the document, just above the name of the attorney or party appearing in proper person.  These codes are used by the court to enable the collection of statistical information for the Nevada Administrative Office of the Courts.

Please select the code that most closely fits the document, motion or petition you are filing. If a document addresses two separate issues, such as “Motion for Sanctions and to Reduce Arrears to Judgment,” use the code for the first issue in the title. In this scenario, you would use the code MSNC, which is the code for Motion for Sanctions.
