What happens to my document when it is presented for recording?
If the document meets the form requirements, is complete, and the proper fees have been paid we will accept your document and make it a matter of public record. We then key the pertinent information to create an index so that you may locate this document in the future. The document is scanned into our computer system and a backup microfilm copy is also made. Your original document will be returned as directed. If the original document is ever lost or misplaced, a certified copy may be obtained from our office.
