If he was a minor was it illegally presented. He didn't sign anything and wasn't ask his age?
Expert:  DCrane Law replied 7 years ago.

If he was a minor he would not be able to accept service of process.

Was he suppose to sign to acknowledge receipt.
Expert:  DCrane Law replied 7 years ago.
Yes, he was supposed to sign as verification that service was perfected. I apologize for the delay, I did not know that you replied to my most recent posts until moments ago when another Expert sent me an email.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
So if he didn't sign anything am I still legally served?
Expert:  DCrane Law replied 7 years ago.
Technically, no but if he was served by an officer than it becomes your son's word vs. the officer's word (and you know who wins that battle).
