Hello friend and thank you for requesting me. I hope you are well today.

Do I make copies of both filled in pages and send them to the Court and the DA's office?

Are you using pre-filled form? If so, which one - which number form?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

It's a CR-125/JV-525

Expert:  Ely replied 1 year ago.
Thank you, friend.

After filling out the subpoena, you must take it to the clerk of the court. The clerk will look at the subpoena and may ask you a few questions. The clerk will the sign and stamp your Subpoena "Filed," and then you may serve the subpoena to the DA's office.

The Court itself normally does not need a copy, but, the clerk will tell you if they do or not at the time of stamping it.

I hope this helps and clarifies. Best of luck.

I've already got blank subpoenas stamped and signed and dated by the court clerk. My question is, do I make copies of the subpoenas and give them to the DA?

Expert:  Ely replied 1 year ago.
Friend,

No, the original subpoena that you have stamped is sent to the DA, certified mail, return receipt requested... you make a copy for yourself.

I am not sure if you can subpoena the opposing party because subpoenas are meant for THIRD PARTIES that are not party to the matter, but it is worth a try since you seem already to be doing this...

how about taking them in to the DA's office tomorrow and personally delivering them?

Expert:  Ely replied 1 year ago.
Hello friend,

No, you must send them certified mail, I am afraid.
