Customer Question

When I am responding to a complaint, the certificate of service goes to the corresponding court as well as the plaintiffs attorney? Or just one of them? I am required to send it certified mail yes but can also email it?
I would put something like:
I HEREBY CERTIFY that this true and correct copy of the response has been registered via Certified Mail and delivered to the 13th Clerk of Court Tampa Florida as well as Attorney ABC123 at***** Tampa Florida.
Do they both need to be certified?

You are certifying to the court that you did respond and send your response to plaintiff's attorney. You can also email it if you like.

I replied to this but it didn't post apparently.

So I am not required to record my response or send it to the courthouse, only to the plaintiffs attorney am I understanding that correctly?

Expert:  Asad Rahman replied 1 year ago.

You send the copy to the Plaintiff's attorney and file it in the court. The certification statement goes on the end that you certified to the court that you have sent a copy to the plaintiff.

Does that make sense?
