In New Jersey, after you file your legal document naming another party in the action, you must provide the defendant with a copy of the document. This is called service of process. This is a highly important step in any lawsuit. Without proper service the defendant can easily obtain a motion for summary judgement as the court will refuse to consider the relief requested in your legal case. After NJ process service is completed, the New Jersey Process server will fill out an affidavit which will be filed with the court. The affidavit of service describes the date, place, time and how the paperwork was served.
Summons and complaints must be served in accordance to Rule 4:4-3(a). JerseryServers.com can assist in making sure the rules of civil procedure are followed. NJ process servers at Jerseyservers.com have an exceptional track record in obtaining “good service” (which is not always completed on the first attempt) and complete the requisite proof of service affidavit as required by Rule 4:4-7.
There are some special rules to consider depending on who the defendant or receipt of the service may be. Minors and incompetents cannot be served and instead parents or guardians must instead be served. See, Rule 4:4-4(a)(2)(3). In serving a corporation, the process must be served to an officer, director, trustee, manager or general agent, registered agent or any servant of the corporation. See, Rule 4:4-4(a)(6). Usually service upon a corporation is accomplished by serving the registered agent, since information on the registered agent is easily accessible. Keep in mind when serving corporations - it will usually be cheaper for the client to obtain the registered agent as not all companies will accept service at their facilities.
All enforceable writs and orders need to be served by the sheriff in accordance with Rule 4:4-3(b). Subpoenas and a summons on the other hand, can be served anywhere to anyone within the State of New Jersey. See, Rule 1:9-4.
