Electronic filing meets the County Clerk, this is progress!

I received an email last week from the Oklahoma County Clerk notifying me all documents can now be filed (or recorded) electronically.  That means from the comfort of whatever internet-enable computer I use.

As far as I know, this is new, since deeds and similar type of documents had to be hand-delivered to Oklahoma County Clerk’s office before.  Why is this significant? It is a positive step toward streamlining the filing process and reducing both the overhead at the Clerk’s office and in many other people’s offices.  The fact that it is a county clerk, a place where paper records going to back to statehood are maintained, makes it even more significant.

The full email is below.

On this blog, I write about and try to answer practical Oklahoma legal questions. My focus and most experience is in estate planning and business issues including Oklahoma non-compete law. I make a living as an attorney in the law firm I founded, Shawn J. Roberts, P.C. in Oklahoma City. I live in Edmond with my wife Amy and my two children, Sam (19) and David (11). We live precisely in the path of where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."
