If server is refused entry by guard can server leave copy of summons with guard and that be considered good service?
NRS 14.090 1A
what is return of serrvice
The form there appears to relate specifically to domestic violence cases - is there another form that would be correct for proving service on a breach of contract civil complaint? Can I simply use the affidavit here in some manner:
I don't see anything specific regarding service to a gate guard on that form, however.
One more thing - is there a specific rule allowing service to someone at their place of employment/business?
Thanks for the reply - do you have a specific section of Nevada civil code I could read relating to your reply about service at work?
I understand. Quickly back to the other item - regarding the service in the gated community - suppose I've gotten through the gate and to the house, and via intercom a person within the defendant's property (who refuses to identify themself) is talking to me. They refuse to open the door. Can I tell them I am leaving a copy of the summons at the door and this will be considered good service with a signed affidavit explaining the situation? Thanks for all your assistance.
Through whom do I "apply for substituted service"? The clerk? Or do I need to bring some type of ex parte motion to the judge?
