Signator Law and Legal Definition

Signator refers to a person who signs a document. For example, § 130-1.1-a of New York Standards and Administrative policies says that every pleading, written motion, and other paper, served on another party or filed or submitted to the court shall be signed by an attorney, or by a party if the party is not represented by an attorney. The act of signing is deemed by the rule to be a certification that the contentions in the paper are not frivolous and serves to reinforce the obligation of the signators not to engage in frivolous conduct.
