? on Service by Certified Mail
      #774033 - 01/12/12 06:08 PM

Service by Certified Mail must be done by an adult over 18 who is neither plaintiff nor defendant. So if my friend sends the response certified mail, does she put her return address on it? Then she gives me the signed receipt when she gets it?

Certified mail RRR is delivered by the USPS. Not clear what you are referring to with the over 18. Once the defendant is served, the defendant files an answer stmped in the courts clerks office and a copy is sent to plaintiff with a certificate of service.

---> I think you're confused. Personal service has to be done by someone who is over the age of 18. They then fill out a form, certifying that they served the documents.

---> Service by certified mail is where you fill out the green receipt and green card with YOUR name and address. Once the document is delivered/refused/or unabled to be delivered, the post office sends back the green card to you. You then make a copy and file the original as 'proof' of service or attempted service, with the courts.
