How to Record
You can record your documents in any county, any where in America. Prices will vary greatly. Typically, the county recording office will charge you the largest fee for the recording cover sheet, and then it will be $1 per page after that.
Some County Recording Offices require you to use their recording sheet, others allow you to use your own. You will want to call the Recorders Office ahead of time, or visit the website to find out if you can use your own recording sheet, or if you are required to use theirs. You will want to get a copy of their form before you record your documents so that you can prepare it properly.
The most inexpensive way to record your documents is to do as many as possible together. If you do the documents separately, you will pay the expensive cover sheet recording fee each time and that can add up to hundreds of dollars.
If you are doing separate recordings, you want to be sure to link your documents together on the recording sheet. Some Recording Offices have reference document linking, or you can set up your own numbering system and record as an addendum to the original recording. Again, you will want to ask the Recording Office what is the most efficient way to keep the documents linked and tracked together.
Please note: if you have a name change, you will need to do another Act of Expatriation document for the name change if you have no middle name. If you do have a middle name, you will need to do 3 more documents Act of Expatriation documents for each name change. For example, if you have a middle name and were married twice and changed your name twice, you would have 9 Oath of Expatriation Documents: 1 for your trade name (the name you were born with) and 2 for the married names. The same would apply if you were adopted or simply changed your name. All known names, nicknames, etc would be included in your Certificate of Assumed Name, Deed of Conveyance or Reconveyance, and Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act. You should do a Cancellation of All Prior Powers of Attorney for each different name.

How to Autograph
For your Deed of Reconveyance (if you were born in America) you should autograph your name in red ink.
For your Deed of Conveyance (if you were not born in America), you should autograph in Blue Ink.
Here is the guidance from Anna on the Deed of Conveyance:
“They –the new immigrants– are starting out “at sea” in the international jurisdiction of the sea and are conveying themselves to our land jurisdiction for the first time, therefore they use blue ink. When we re-convey back to the land jurisdiction of our State we are giving Notice to the sea jurisdiction authorities that we are back “home” on the land where we started out, which is why we sign in red and record the paperwork. We are native to these shores, not foreigners. We came from here and we are returning home— coming back after being shanghaied. The new immigrants are foreigners coming from overseas for the first time ever.
Does it make sense that a person who goes on a sea voyage and then returns home is in a different position than a person who goes on a sea voyage and lands in a foreign country? Okay, so we use red and new immigrants use blue because we are starting out from different “places”. We are native and they are naturalized. We come from this land and return to this land. They come from over the sea and come ashore here. End of story.”
For all other documents, you should autograph your name in blue ink. Be sure to include your copyright symbol after your name. Don’t forget your red thumbprint seal. When editing the templates, be sure to remove the word Seal from the document.
The autograph should be:
