Does the court require original signed documents
Maddie - 05 March, 2018 03:35PM
Hello,

I signed my statement of information and the consent order, then e-mailed both scanned documents to my solicitor as requested. I am a little worried the court will reject scanned copies. Will the court require the original signed documents or are copies acceptable?

Thanks in advance.

The court always requires original signed documents. Copies are not generally acceptable.

Thank you for your prompt reply David. Clearly I misread my solicitor's instructions. eye rolling smiley

Your solicitor may have asked you to email copies for a reason. I do that frequently myself simply to check that the documents are correct before asking the client to return the originals. Checking them prior to posting often saves time.
