Documents that are certified, notarized, or authenticated by other means should be scanned and filed electronically if they are not excessively lengthy (less than 30 megabytes). The filer is responsible for maintaining the original and making it available for inspection upon request by the court or another party.
The original should be maintained at least until all appeals have been completed or the time for taking an appeal has expired.
If the document is excessively large, file the original in paper format and follow the procedures for filing a lengthy document. See Lengthy Documents.
