The timeline for serving documents can vary depending on several factors, including the location of the recipient, the complexity of the case, and the specific requirements of the documents to be served. Generally, attempts are made within a few days to a week after receiving the documents.
If the recipient is evasive or cannot be located, process servers use various methods like skip tracing to locate the person. If the person still cannot be served, the court may allow alternative methods of service, such as publication in a newspaper or posting at the last known address.
An affidavit of service is a document provided by the process server after the documents are successfully served. It details the time, date, and manner of service and is filed with the court as proof of service.
