Affidavit of Service by Mail

The Affidavit of Service tells everyone about the service of the papers. It says:

  • What papers were delivered
  • Who delivered the papers
  • Where the papers were delivered
  • Date and time when the papers were delivered
  • How the papers were delivered
  • If given to someone, a description of the person
  • If papers were mailed, when and how

The Affidavit must be signed by the server in front of a notary public. After the Affidavit of Service is done, it must be filed with the Court.

Proof that legal papers were delivered must always be given to the Court. If the case has started already, the original Affidavit of Service is filed when the original legal papers are given to the Court. The rules are different for filing an Affidavit of Service when starting a case.
