Serving of divorce papers


#1

you can do certified mail which then requires an affidavit of service form…

Two options: 1) mail, certified, return receipt requested or 2) service by sheriff. What you can do is provide the deputy with a phone number of your spouse, and ask the deputy to call the opposing party to see if he will agree to go to the sheriff’s dept and pick up the documents. That way, he can choose the time that he’s served and avoid embarrassment.

In north carolina…is serving by deputy the only option for divorce papers? I’m hoping to choose a less embarassing way to serve them.
