I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
1. If you're having the person personally served, then the person who does that would submit an affidavit. Most sheriff's offices will serve people with paperwork for a small fee. Or, when process is served by mail, you get an affidavit from the person who put the documents in the mail (who should be over 18 and not a party to the action).
2. The clerk of the court will have these for you.
4. There's no need if you're serving them personally. If you're doing service by mail, there's no reason you can't mail the documents to more than one address. The affidavit of service would state each address where the mail was sent. At least one needs to be via certified mail, return receipt requested so you can prove that it was received.

I'm sorry, but because that's considered outside the scope of your original question about jurisdiction and service, if you'd like to discuss the terms of the contract, I have to ask that you leave a positive rating on this question and open a new one.
