Careful Attorney Service offers three levels of service with regard to same day filings in Bay Area courts – immediate, rush and routine. Next day return of conformed copies is included in the charge for filing. If a same day return is required, the return will be charged as a rush delivery from the court to your office. Please call for a rate quote for any particular court. Filing fees can be advanced at your request and will be added to the charge for service. There is a 10% check charge for all fees advanced.
All filings not ready for pick up before 2:00 P.M. will be charged at the immediate rate. Immediate service may be requested at any time of the day.
The rush rate is applied for any filing ready for pick up between the hours of 12:00 P.M. and 2:00 P.M.
All filings ready before 12:00 P.M. will be charged at the routine rate.
Please provide a sufficient number of copies in order to return to your office a conformed copy of each document filed, as well as any courtesy copies to be delivered to a department or chambers. Please bear in mind that the clerk’s office of any U.S. District Court requires an original and one copy, as does Marin County Superior Court. Most state superior courts only require the original document for filing.
