Greetings. No, your lawyer must file a verified copy of the complaint - which means you must verify that the complaint is true by signing the document (a verification form) in front of a notary. You do not however have to go to your attorney’s office. This is the information age afterall. Your attorney can e-mail you the complaint and verification and you can sign the same and express mail (or regular mail) the original back to your attorney. Happy Holidays!
