Understanding Divorce Process Serving
You’ve tried your best to repair your marriage and resolve the issues you’re having with your spouse. Unfortunately, it seems as though divorce is the only viable option for both of you. Further complicating matters is the serving of divorce papers to your spouse. AZ Quick Serve wants to help you understand divorce process serving to simplify matters so you can move on with your life.
Method of Delivery
Because of your personal involvement with this particular legal case, you are not permitted to serve your current spouse the necessary divorce papers. Sure, you can request that someone close to you and close to your spouse handle the delivery for you, but you’re better off leaving the job to a professional familiar with the serving process and your geographic area’s legal regulations. Going with a process server can also be of great help if your spouse knows you’re contemplating divorce and has become scarce.
Specific Legal Papers
Do you know what papers are necessary for filing divorce? You’ll need the “Summons,” sometimes referred to as the “Summons and Complaint.” It’s best to wait until you’re sure about your decision to divorce before moving forward with the paperwork, mainly because there’s a time liming on serving the summons.
The Role of the Process Server
It’s the process server who acts as the messenger of your decision to divorce. The server verifies your spouse’s identity and ensures she or he physically received all necessary court papers. The server also has to verify she or he physically delivered the papers, creating a legal paper trail and letting you and the courts know about the successful serving.
