Serving a Subpoena


#1

I am now representing myself and have completed two subpoena’s and had them signed off by the court clerk. The first one I will be mailing out of state to his employer requesting wage and compensation information and will be sending this registered/certified with return receipt. The second one I will have served locally (by a friend) to his financial group requesting 401 k, I.R.A, etc statements.

My question is do I deliver a copy to his attorney with the return service section left blank, do I wait for to receive the return receipt make a copy and attach, or do I serve the subpoena on his attorney? Also, I have the same question for when returning the subpoena to the court. Your help is very much appreciated.

I found the answer to my own question. I understand that I need to file a affidavit of service by certified mail form (I have this form) with the court and need to complete a certificate of service form as well. Now I just need to know where I can find a certificate of service form and a affidavit of service form for the subpoena I had had delivered. Thank you.

We have an affidavit of service form available on our website. A certificate of service is simple form that is attached to every pleading filed with the court to indicate that it was served on the opposing party.
