I am in the process of applying for the certified copy of a finding and award in my case. Where do I get it? From the commission or from the presiding workers compensation judge? How long does it take to have it issued and how much will I need to enclose with my request.
Thanking you in advance for your response.§10820. When Certified Copies Will Issue. Certified copies of findings and awards or other final orders for the purpose of having judgment entered and execution issued by the clerk of a superior court shall be issued only upon written request of a person entitled to benefits thereunder or by the attorney or authorized representative, and upon payment of the fees prescribed by the Rules of the Administrative Director. Certified copies of such orders and awards against authorized insurance carriers, authorized self-insured employers, the State of California and all political subdivisions thereof shall be issued only upon receipt of a written request showing good cause therefor. Every request for a certified copy of any final order must state whether proceedings are pending on reconsideration or judicial review, whether a petition for reconsideration or a writ of review has been filed, and whether the decision, a certified copy of which is requested has become final.
