Whose Name Should Go In The Signature Field?

by Julia Burns

EAMS S-SIGNATURE

“An S signature on the e-form shall consist of the letter S followed by the name of the person signing the document…”

On your EAMS filings, you will see “S-signatures” as allowed by EAMS electronic filing regulations. This is similar to the electronic signature format found in other courts, although other courts also use slashes (these are not allowed in EAMS).

The EAMS Reference Guide gives a bit of guidance regarding the S-signature on pages 41-42:

Use of the S signature is limited  to electronic filing.

An S signature on the e-form shall consist of the letter S followed by the name of the person signing the document, in the following format: S JOHN JONES – not “S SIGNATURE.” Do not enter a middle name or initial.


The S signature shall be rebuttably presumed to be that of the individual whose name is on the document signature line.

You cannot use a Signature Stamp or a digital signature on any of your documents.
