My neighbor served my attorney and my ex's attorney the MC 50 form (unsigned by him). Once he mailed it out he signed page 2 of form MC-50 and I went to the clerk at the courts to file that original form with my neighbors signature on it. I got a "Conformed Copy" stamped on the copies of the MC 50 form I took with me.
I then find out that I am supposed to
serve them the court stamped MC 50 forms too.
I heard that my neighbor is to serve them copies of the court filed MC 50 forms using the POS-030 form. I was also told that I do not have to file that POS-030 form with the courts correct?
There are 2 pages that go with form MC-50. Page 1 is the Substitution of Attorney-Civil and page 2 is the Proof of Service by Mail form, NOT the POS-30 form. It's similar but looks completely different.
my neighbor served them on July 7th with the unsigned page 2 of the MC 50 form along with with the signed and completed page 1 of the MC 50 form, signed by me and my lawyer consenting to releasing her as my attorney.
I am trying to serve my attorney this time with a copy of the court stamped MC 50 form to prove and show her that it was filed at the court and stamped by them making it legal.
My question is this. I printed out the POS-030 form from online. I filled it out and it is ready for my neighbor to pop it in the mail. He will in the envelope, put the court stamped MC 50 form along with an unsigned POS-030 form. He will then sign the original POS-030 form and hand it over to me.
What do I do with the POS-030 form?
The MAIN page 1 of the MC 50 form has already been filed with the courts and stamped.
Do I still need to file just the POS-030 form with the filing clerk at the courts?
