Legal papers must be served the right way! There are no exceptions to that rule, and when family court matters are involved, there is a lot to take into consideration in order to ensure that the legal documents were properly served and the affidavit correctly executed.
There are many different Family Court Matters – divorce summons and complaints, child support summons and petitions, child support collection enforcement, petitions for visitation. The process server who handles the case must be very knowledgeable about the rules that apply to each case depending on the filing court and the docket (case) letter.
At Associated Services we look at each Family Court case separately before we send it out with the process server. We make sure that we apply the correct rules for service permissible by the court, and in case of court orders signed by a Judge, we carefully follow the instructions stated in the paperwork, adhering to time frames and deadlines.

Understanding the importance and weight of a service of process is essential to the outcome of a lawsuit. Knowing the process server, the person who delivers the notice of a lawsuit, to the parties required by law, is imperative.

Is this enough to ensure the proper service of process on your defendants?
At Associated Services we strongly believe it is not enough. Times and again we have helped law firms and private individuals “repair” the harm done by other people who have attempted service or have failed to execute the affidavit properly.
