Sometimes we are not able to get the pre-lien mailed on the date we create the document, can the mailed date differ from them document date? Or must they be the same date?

That's a good question, and that's not really something covered by the California Civil Code in its provisions relating to preliminary notice. However, the most important date relating to preliminary notice is the date that the notice is sent. As long as notice is sent within the deadline, and as long as the signature on the notice is dated prior to the sending of the notice, having different dates shouldn't have any impact on its effectiveness. But again - in a situation where the date of signing and the date of sending differ, the date on which a notice is sent will be the date from which the notice will be based.
