A designation of record is an indication that the items identified should be allowed in the court record, as the individual attests that they are true. A designation of record on appeal states that some of the information may not be true and should not be allowed into the record.
A designation of record is a specific legal form which must be filled out by the individual determining the designation of record or designation of record on appeal.
As with any legal form, instructions must be followed exactly. Individuals must sign where appropriate and be certain the designation of record is filed properly. As with most legal forms, it is always best to consult an attorney before filing any legal paperwork.
