Kind of. If it is a clerk that accepts electronic submissions than you could do that or you can go to the clerk's office, take a witness with you, and slip the papers under their door along with a note attached to them telling then the date and time you are delivering them along with a note from the witness stating that they were present when you delivered the papers on that date.
The courts have said that once it is in the clerk's possession then it is considered "filed" and by slipping it under a locked door in the clerk's office then you are delivering it in to their possession.
Either of those two ways should work.
