The original is sent to the county clerk for recording and afterwards is sent back to you.
When electronic filing is used, the escrow agent can give you the original immediately after submitting it.
You could call the title company any request it as well, but I find most agents are happy to reconnect with their clients and would be happy to help out. I know I would.
If you would like help in this feel free to call me. I would be happy to help! :)
