When submitting papers to be served you must provide the following information.
If you wish for us to fill out your own affidavit (some states require their own to be used and notarized) please include a copy along with your papers. We do not notarize the affidavit unless it is requested. A charge of $0.50 per page will be added for notarizing.
To more effectively assist you in serving your papers, we will need to know information about each person to be served. This information below will help by saving excessive fees on the officer’s time.
