    You will need to be more specific. If you are referring to a "motion," in which you ask the judge for something in a particular case, then you would file the motion with the Clerk of Court where the case is pending. If you are trying to file a law suit, then you and/or an attorney representing you would file the law suit (complaint) with the Clerk of Court as well.

    The answer to your main question regarding whether you can be charged is YES. You may be able to contest the charges depending upon the facts of your case. You should seek the advice of your public defender or consult with a private attorney, depending upon your financial circumstances.
