Signature Requirements1. Is a handwritten signature required?
2. How do I E-File documents that require multiple signatures?
Authorized E-Filers may use an electronic signature in E-Filing. Any document that must be signed by someone who is not an Authorized E-Filer requires a handwritten signature.
3. How do I E-File a document which requires an original signature from a non E-Filer?
Documents that normally need the signature of more than one attorney, such as consent motions, can be E-Filed by one attorney by inserting the electronic signature (s/signature) of the other attorneys. You must obtain written consent from the other attorneys. Evidence of this agreement can be via email, fax etc. The filing attorney should keep these documents for his/her files.
4. How do I electronically sign a document for e-filing?
A document which requires an original signature, once signed, can be scanned into a searchable PDF format and E-Filed.
You will use your digital signature (s/signature). For further details, see the attorney reference guide ARG-02 Electronic Signatures.
