Am now serving by process of publication. 40th day ending on Feb.3. My concerns are:
a)is there a time limit on my Nov. 14 file date?
b)how do I get deputy to stop attempts of service, do I need a form and file it at clerk?
c) will the publishers affidavit be sufficient to take to clerk and request a court date and will it cancel out the deputy paperowrk?
d)In my affidavit of service by publication there are 6 fields to fill out. I am unsure how to fill out number 1&6.
“as shown by attatched publisher’s affidavit and__________sheriff’s return of service”.
6:includes "information regarding the location of the person served used in determining the area in which service by publication was printed.

Thanks for your attention
