If I subpoena someone, using the instructions you gave me (go to the room in the courthouse where you file papers), do I have to let the opponent’s attorney know that I have subpoenaed this person?
How long is considered adequate time for someone to receive a subpoeana? For example, if I subpoena Kathy three weeks before the trial, can she then say, “Sorry, can’t make it”?
I know that before the last hearing, I got notice that they had subpoenaed her the day before the hearing. Granted, I know that was done just to rattle my nerves, because she would have willingly complied.
And out of state witnesses? Do I have to notify them that I will be asking someone from out of state to come testify?
Lastly, in the case of someone who is hostile and dishonest (Kathy) is there a way to pay to have her served by the sheriff, rather than by mail? And if mailing, should I send via certified mail? I’m thinking about the teacher of my son’s, that I do not know his home address, nad would need to send it to the school. What’s the best way to go abotu that?
