An Affidavit of Service is a piece of paper that shows the court that you had the papers served in the correct way. The affidavit must include the following information:
When the papers were served
Where the papers were served
Who the papers were served on
A physical description of the person the papers were served on
The name and address of the person who served the papers
If you serve the papers by mail, the affidavit must say where the papers were sent from and where they were sent to.
If the papers are sent by certified mail, you must attach the certified mail receipt to your affidavit.
The Affidavit of Service must be notarized (NO-tar-ized). This means the person who serves the papers must sign the affidavit in front of a notary public.
Please note: The person being served does not sign the Affidavit of Service.
