What are the signature requirements of an eFiled document?

A document electronically filed using the eFiling system may be signed in two ways.
  • An eFiler may place his/her personal signature on a document, scan the document, convert it to PDF or PDF/A form, and upload it to be filed; or
  • An eFiler may sign a document electronically.
    • The name of the filing party's attorney must be preceded by an "/s/" and typed in the space where the signature would otherwise appear.
    • The electronic signature of the filing party's attorney will be treated as a personal signature and will serve as a signature for purposes of CR 11, all other Kentucky Rules of Civil Procedure, any applicable statutes, the Local Rules of Court, and any other purpose for which a signature is required in connection with proceedings before the court
