Default Finishing a Basement and a Permit


Did anyone submit an application to get a permit for finishing their basement?
I sketched a plan myself..
I think I got all the drawing requirements written down.. but not 100% sure..

My question is.. do I just hand in my application to a city clerk and come home.. and wait till I hear from the city?
or will there be someone(a city engineer or an architect) to answer my questions if my drawings are accurate?? So I don't have to go back and forth.. I just can't afford to take 2-3 vacation day for this permit process..

Hope someone had a similar experience..

That's why most people don't apply a permit for basement finishing unless they are doing structure change
