Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
PS - If you let me know the city/county in which the land is located, I'd be happy to give you the appropriate phone number.
Generally, no, you would not have to be physically present to file a lien.....but you would need to have the appropriate paperwork filled out to file with the clerk's office OR have a local lawyer in that area file the paperwork for you.
However, if you ever were to sue to enforce your lien or pursue collection, it could be possible that you would have to appear in person to testify to the judge about the facts of your case, etc.
You can call the court clerk for the county where you want to file the lien and ask if they have forms, etc. available for you to use. If so, you could ask them to mail/email the forms to you OR they may even have them available online. If not, you're likely going to need a local lawyer to help you get the documents drafted and filed.
