    COUNTY CLERK SPEAKS AT NORTH HILLS ROTARY FOR VETS MEETING - July 25, 2013

    Nassau County Clerk Maureen O’Connell was the guest speaker at the North Hills Rotary for Veterans meeting. Clerk O’Connell spoke with members about the services the Clerk’s office provides to the community including the processing and maintenance of the County’s land and court records. Another service discussed was the recording of Veteran Certificate of Release and Discharge (DD-214) papers free of charge. As an incentive for veterans to take advantage of this service, Clerk O’Connell talked about the Nassau Veterans Recognition Program which offers Veterans discounts at participating businesses throughout Nassau County for recording their discharge papers. Veterans were encouraged to file their discharge papers with the County Clerk.

    Clerk O’Connell also advised members about mass mailings for costly deed retrieval services, some of which cost 1000% more than the Clerk’s Office fees, and to disregard such offers. These deceptive solicitations advise homeowners they need to purchase a certified copy of their deed which actually can be obtained directly from the Clerk’s office for a nominal fee. She cautioned homeowners to be aware of other types of scams seen at the Clerk’s office and initiatives she has undertaken to assist and protect residents. Clerk O’Connell reminded the members to be wary of solicitations looking for any type of personal identifying information.

    COUNTY CLERK ANNOUNCES EXPANDED PAPERLESS FILINGS - July 15, 2013

    Nassau County Clerk Maureen O’Connell announces the expansion of the NYSCEF (New York State Courts E-Filing) program in her office. Recently passed state legislation was signed by the Governor paving the way for the Nassau County Clerk’s Office to harness the full potential of this technological initiative.

    Under the direction of County Clerk O’Connell, Nassau served as a pilot county in the early development of the NYSCEF program seeing consistent utilization by the legal community in Nassau County. “As a pilot county for e-filing we have worked closely with the New York State Unified Court System to make this paperless filing system the success it is today. With Governor Cuomo’s support, I am pleased to offer greater availability to e-filing’s streamlined, efficient, and environmentally friendly case management system.” O’Connell said.

    Using the NYSCEF system could not be easier. Not only does it allow legal practitioners to file and then access their court documents from any location with an internet connection, it also affords them the convenience of a 24/7 virtual Clerk’s Office. Additionally, as a green initiative, electronically filed documents eliminate the need for court records to be produced, transported and maintained in paper format.

    The Nassau County Clerk’s Office currently accepts the majority of Supreme Court cases for filing through the NYSCEF system. This next phase for the e-filing program will require certain types of court actions to be e-filed. Additional information on implementation can be found on the County Clerk’s website at www.nassaucountyny.gov/agencies/Clerk/index.html or by calling 516-571-2660.
