Affidavit of Service


Dear Mary Watkins:

First, included below is the link on our website to the Affidavit of Service example we have provided. … 0Service(1.pdf

I am not sure about the remainder of your questions. If they deal with the Affidavit of Service, then you can see the same above.

Irreconcible differences is no fault. It just means that we are different and cannot agree, therefore cannot live together. Best of luck.

I have filed for divorce with Wake County using a divorce kit. I have received the notice back that my ex-husband has received his certified mail (summons) so I am ready for the next part. I have all the paperwork completed except for one form called the Affidavit of Service that I am to create on my on. All the clerk at the courthouse will tell me is to include case file number along with who, what, where, when, how, and why. I received no other info. Who and what are easy to answer. The others are quetionable

  1. Where—is this address of the courthouse where the divorce will take place or his address?

  2. When—is this the date of court or date of separation?

  3. How—not sure at all on this one?

  4. Why—irreconcible differences?? With NC being a no fault state I didn’t think I had to give a reason why as long as we have been separated for more than 12 months.

Thanks for all your help.-Mary
