Instructions for the Service of Divorce Papers
Complete the attached Document Service forms and submit by fax, email, courier or personal delivery to our offices.
Upon receipt in our offices, the file will be sent to one of our professional Process Servers.
The Process Server will make up to three attempts to service the documents on your spouse. Please note not all services will be
successful, though Consolidated Civil Enforcement prides itself on its number of successful document services.
Once service has been completed, or three attempts at service have been completed, our office will contact you by phone or email
to make you aware of the results of the service.
Our office will then complete a sworn affidavit of service, affidavit of attempted service, or affidavit in support of subservice for
your use. This affidavit is your proof that the documents were either served or the explanation for why we were unable to serve
the documents. You will then need to file the affidavit accordingly.
Time Options for Service
4 to 7 working days for completion of service/three attempts at service.
6 to 10 working days for return of affidavit.
Up to 3 working days for completion of service/three attempts at service. First attempt usually within 24 hours.
