Once any petition is mailed it is your responsibility to check on  tracking for delivery and additionally any docketing.  I will scan and email you the USPS post office receipts that contains the tracking numbers.  If you want insurance for USPS mailing please ask for it  in the estimate.  Note I do almost exclusively last minute FILING that run the risk of the court continuing on without you as if you did not file anything.  In addition if you do not check tracking for delivery and the docket to insure filing in a timely manner you also run the risk of missing your mailed filing from being considered at all.  Any reprint is at the your cost.  In addition some motions and filings are small such as maybe only 8 pages so I have a minimum of 400 dollars for printing plus 75 proof of service (if required additional 50 proof of service for  electronic copy of motion,)  and 25 dollars mailing USPS priority mail.
