What is the difference between regular, certified, and exemplified copies?

  • Copies are a photocopy of any document in a file.
  • Certified copies are photocopies of a filed document in its entirety (everything within a staple) that is sworn to be a true copy by a court clerk. The certified copy should not be taken apart, as once the staple is removed the certification becomes invalid.
  • Exemplified copy, also called a 3-way certificate, is a photocopy of a pleading in its entirety that is sworn to by the Trial Court Administrator (TCA).  The signature of the TCA is then sworn to by the presiding judge.  The TCA then swears to the authenticity of the presiding judge’s signature.
