Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Thank you for your question.
I would go to the courthouse and get a copy of the proof of service to see what it says. Then you can file a motion to quash service of process with a declaration stating that you were not personally served,
There is no standard form for a motion to quash service, but your County Law Library will have legal form books with forms you can use as a model for your motion.
May I ask what the lawsuit is about? An accident? A contract?
I believe you will be charged $36 if you accept my answer.
I asked if it was an accident case to see if you might have insurance that covers this.
You can get a free consultation from some of the contracts attorneys listed by location here.
You are allowed to waive the defective service by just filing a response to the complaint, but that is a decision that should be made in consultation with a local attorney.
Please follow up on this with a local attorney.
