Serving Divorce Papers
“You have a right to know that someone is suing you for something,” explains attorney Kinsler. “If service isn’t proper, you’ll have to start all over again.” This is why it is important to know the right way to serve divorce papers.
Options for Serving Divorce Papers
- Service by Mail
- Service by Publication
- The Best Way to Serve Anyone is Personal Service. This can be done either by Civil Process Server (Recommended), or by the Sheriff.
In order for service to be free of issues, at Sterling Law Offices we always use a civil process server to make sure the person is personally served and we have admission of service signed.
We make it a matter of practice to serve people in person using a civil process server. It doesn’t have to be embarrassing for the individual when done right. There is enough tension in family law. Our attorneys will work with a conscientious civil process server in order to avoid injecting unnecessary conflict into the process.
