I filed a notice of motion and received the responsive declaration but it does not have the clerk stamp on it saying that it is a conformed copy with the date that the original was filed. I do not know when this was filed or even if it was, I have always been told when I serve a document it has to have the conformed copy stamp- is this not true? I am in California thank you!
No, the responsive declaration does not have to be conformed stamped.

No it is not true-- NO documents served must have the court stamp.Not in civil or in Family Law. if you want to check the docket, check the court web site.
There is no requirement to have a response conformed before service. There are documents that have to be stamped before service, (summons) but a response is not one of them. You can Google Fresno County Superior Court and then click on case status to see if the response has been filed with the court.
I am a Fresno attorney and offer free consultations should you wish to discuss your matter.
