An Affidavit of Service is a document through which one party, the process server, affirms that they have correctly served process on another party. Serving process means delivering certain documents to the target party. These are generally court documents at the beginning of a new court action.
Affidavits of Service contain basic information about the service of process such as:
1. Who the process server is;
2. When process was served;
3. How it was served;
4. What documents were served; and
5. Identifying information for the party served.
How to use this document
This document should be completed by a process server who has just completed serving documents on the individual that was their target. A process server has to be unrelated to any of the parties and "disinterested" in the action, which just means that they don't have a stake in what happens within the litigation.
This document is easy to fill out and contains the basic information needed to complete this Affidavit of Service.
Once it is filled out, the Affidavit should be notarized, which means the process server should sign before a Notary Public, and then it should be "served," either by personal delivery or mail. What this means is simply that the Affidavit of Service must reach the person for whom it is intended.
Affidavits of Service will be covered by state-specific procedural laws. However, there is generally one form that contains the required information for each of the states and this document meets those requirements.
