Thank you for using JustAnswer!How was the document submitted to the court?
How did the court receive the document?
In what setting?
Hello JB good to here from you again: the document was a prompted reply to the allegations, I was given 5 days to respond in writing or default.
Okay, so you submitted a written document to have been filed by the court clerk?
And to be clear.....this was not a document that you introduced as an exhibit in open court during a hearing or trial, correct?
No, in fact it was the only way to have any comunication to this court
As a general matter, when a document is submitted to the court for filing, the clerks will write that document to the court's electronic case management system.
For example, if you had submitted your written answer and affirmative defenses for filing, the clerks may enter something along the lines of: Defendant's Answer and Affirmative Defenses filed.....and include the date that they were received.
So, in that sense, it would be noted as a part of the record that a document was received/filed as a part of the court file.
that make sence
I hope that you found this information to be helpful and this answer to be ACCEPTable!
very encouraging thank you JB
