​Time Calculator

This time calculator can be used to calculate future dates, such as timelines for filing briefs.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Time Calculation screen is offered as a convenience to the attorneys, the parties, and the public and does not reflect the official due date for an action or filing under the court rules.If you have a question as to when a particular action must be taken or when a certain filing is due, you should contact the Clerk’s Office.

If you use the Time Calculator tool, enter the triggering act or event as “Start Date.”

You may also use a calendar to determine the due date.  To determine the due date for a filing, count the day after the triggering act or event as “Day 1” and continue counting each day after, including weekends and holidays, until you reach the number of days allowed by the deadline. For example:

If the triggering event was an order that was entered on a Tuesday and the filing deadline is 21 days, you would count Wednesday as Day 1, Thursday as Day 2, Friday as Day 3, and so on until you reach Day 21. Your filing is due on Day 21.

Because most deadlines in the court rules are stated in 7-day increments, the deadline day will usually be the same day of the week as the triggering event. For example: 

If the triggering event is an order that was issued on Tuesday, October 1 and you have a 21-day deadline, Day 21 will be Tuesday, October 22. That means your filing would be due on October 22.

If the end of the deadline falls on a weekend or court holiday, your deadline is extended until the next day that the court is open. So, in the example above, if the court was closed on October 22, the deadline would be extended until the next day the court was open.​
