Do i need to send a hard copy to the family court if i already faxed them a copy?

Q:  I responded to an Order to show cause which seeks to modify an existing visitation order from Family court in Rockland county, by faxing my response with all supporting exhibits to the court. Must I send via mail all the same faxed documents? If the order to show cause will be heard before my mail package arrives, is there any sense in mailing it?

A:  David's Answer:  If your "response" was an affidavit (which it should have been), then yes, the Court will need the original to be filed. The Court will also need to receive an affidavit of service stating that someone other than your self mailed a copy of those papers to the other side. Schedule a consultation with a Rockland/Westchester Family Law lawyer for a full assessment.  -- David Bliven, Westchester Family Law attorney (
