Judgement for Absolute Divorce


#1

Can someone tell me if on the judgement for absolute divorce form if it must be stated that the defendant was properly served with a copy of the compaint and civil summons on XYZ (moth, day, year) as required by Rule 4 of the NC Rules of Civil Procedure as follows:
Sheriffs service
certified mail
etc…

I’ve seen 2 different forms and each are different - one with this information and one without- does it matter???

No, the judgment will not contain reference to Service, however the file should have proof of service in the form of an affidavit showing how the complaint was served and when.
