I have a court hearing and need to subpoena some neighbors

Customer Question

I have a court hearing and need to subpoena some neighbors who saw my wife cheating and mistreating the children when I am at work. Who can serve the subpoenas and how long before the court hearing do they have to be served

Thanks for the opportunity to assist you. MI Rule of Civil Procedure 2.103 tells us that any legally competent adult can serve a subpoena. If the person is not a professional process server or sheriff's deputy, they'll have to file an affidavit regarding service.

As for the time frame, I cannot find a rule that says a subpoena must be served within X days before the hearing. The general rule is no less than 72 hours before the hearing. Serve earlier than later.
