RE Florida Law... If, in fact there was improper service,

This answer was rated:

RE Florida Law...

If, in fact there was improper service, and defendant asserts such in the response to the complaint, including evidence of denial of due process... can the Plaintiff simply "re-attempt" service in the midst of the current case? Or, does Florida law require a new filing and new service on a new case has to occur... ie a "start-over" ?

Thank you.
The court would.allow.the plaintiff to.attempt.service.again in circumstances such as this.

Thank you! some questions...

1. Defendant and her husband co-own a homestead in Florida (where they reside), so can it then it be legally declared that that the address of the Defendant is discoverable in the Florida Public Record?


2. If I or anyone were to look-up the name of the Defendant in Florida county PROPERTY records, would I be able to find an address for the Defendant... due to the fact that the Defendant does own her own home in the Florida county?
You are.absolutely correct. The answer to both of.your questions.is yes and yes.

Good luck.to.you.and thanks.

OK thank you. To follow up.... 1. Can Defendant issue Motion to Quash - MTQ Service as a response to the Summmons? i.e a limited response. 2. Can Defendant attach a sworn affidavit from mailbox store owner "in support of Defendants Answer and AFF ? 3. If hearing is set for MTQ and service is ruled invalid then does Plaintiff have legal right to serve defendant at that point i.e.there in the Courthouse ... or would the case have to be re-filed and sent out for service once new case is filed? 3). If service is allowed to be effected on Defendant at the MTQ hearing, then does Defendant again have 20 days in which to respond?

btw... Defendant currently has affidavit from store owner... the title at top of Affidiavit says it is Affidavit in Support of Defendant's Answer and Affirmative Defenses. -- If Defendant is going to move for Motion to Quash is that Affidavit "title" a problem in attaching the Affidavit to a Motion to Quash Service? Or is the Affidavit testimony acceptable regardless of the title at the top?
