There are a number of very good reasons to require that service of divorce papers be conducted by a neutral third party, including protecting your safety.
But from the court’s perspective the best advantage of third party service, especially by a process server, is that a process server creates a reliable document of efforts to serve papers, as well as when and where papers were ultimately served.
Use of a process server also ensures that all pages of a summons and complaint are accurately delivered.
Because your spouse has a legal right to respond and be party to their own divorce, it’s in everyone’s best interest that an uninvolved, court approved individual handle the delivery of legal documents and provide the court with an affidavit affirming service.
When you work with the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, accurate, reliable service of legal documents is a routine part of the process you’ll never have to worry about.
