What is an Affidavit of Service?

If you're a process server, you'll need evidence of the people or parties you've served documents to. Creating an Affidavit of Service shows that you've done your job and can even serve as evidence, for example, if a party denies they've been served.

When to use an Affidavit of Service:

  • You're a process server hired to serve court documents or other important documents to a person or organization.
  • You've hired someone to serve documents and you need a record that the job has been completed.
