Acceptance of Service basics

When you've received lawsuit documents without formal service, you can use an Acceptance of Service document to waive your right to formal service in a lawsuit. In a legal action, waiving formal service can help you get right to your defense.

Use the Acceptance of Service document if:

  • You have received a copy of documents in a legal action and you would like to waive official service.
  • You have received a complaint in a lawsuit and want to file your defense quickly.

An Acceptance of Service is most often used when you've received the initial lawsuit documents before they've been officially served to you. Our Acceptance of Service document can be used to waive your service requirement in the legal action. After waiving, you'll no longer need to wait to be formally served to respond to the lawsuit. However, once you've agreed to waive the service, the clock on your response time starts ticking, and you'll need to file a response, or an answer, to the lawsuit.
