Filing Tips

This office only will accept the most current versions of the National Financing Statement (Form UCC1) and the National Financing Statement Amendment (Form UCC3). The Addendum (Forms UCC1Ad and UCC3Ad) and the Additional Party forms (Forms UCC1AP and UCC3AP) only should be completed and submitted with Form UCC1 or Form UCC3 if needed to record additional debtors and/or secured parties. (Note: The Additional Party forms also may be used to record additional debtors and/or secured parties when filing Notices of Judgment Liens and Notices of Attachment Liens.)

Please send the original document only. An acknowledgment letter and copy of the image of the original document will be returned as the acknowledgment copy for each accepted filing. To request a debtor search certificate at the time of filing, submit a National Information Request form (UCC11) along with the additional fee.
