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, Cazes Roberts, PLLC in Oklahoma City. I live in Edmond with wife Amy and my two children, Sam (17) and David (9). We live precisely in the path of where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."
