NOTE: Read the US court document to insure its validity. Use extra caution when reviewing
court documents to ensure that the document presented is approved by the court and
is not just a petition for a name change or a document issued by an entity other than
a U.S. court jurisdiction.
Court orders or decrees issued by a U.S. court jurisdiction are always issued on the
court’s letterhead (e.g., Superior Court of Los Angeles, Circuit Court of New York
) and include at least one of the following:
have a raised stamp, or affixed seal of the court,
statement of the order of decree that it was filed with the U.S. court jurisdiction
and signed by the clerk of the court; or
judge’s signature on the order or decree.
