EXPEDITE A CONFESSION OF JUDGMENT IN NEW YORK COUNTY?
I just discovered it is not that easy.
In New York County, confession of judgments are subject to mandatory e-filing. However, once you e file, an index number will not be assigned until your papers are reviewed by a clerk. But the backlog is several months.
The clerks will allow you to expedite the filing by coming in person with your e filed payment notice and confirmation notice together with original papers. However, there is a six week waiting period - you can come down in person six weeks after the date you e filed to attempt to expedite.
