Follow the same procedure as listed above with these exceptions:
- Schedule a hearing date and time with the Judge who is swearing you in.
The 30th Circuit Court Clerk’s Office will prepare the order and packet which you will need to pick up and
take with you to the court where you are being sworn in. After you are sworn in, the signed order must be
returned to and filed with the 30th Circuit Court Clerk’s Office-either you or the Court where you are
