Upon receipt of the affidavit, the county clerk will attach the affidavit to the original lien document in the lien docket file and enter a notation of the filing in the mechanics' lien journal. Id.

Patricia D. said: It worked great- I had a little trouble at first with the site, figuring out where to do what, but the form was much better than the one we purchased at Staples, loved being able to fill out with the computer. We did need the other form as per the screen prior to ordering but couldn't figure out which one. The ladies at the recorders were great too.
