Serving of Summons in Foreign Country


#1

Dear javaking66:

Greetings. What is DHL?

Finally, serving a party in a foreign country is tricky, as you already know. I will not research this issue for you, as it would take considerable time and resources, but I advise you to retain an attorney, so that you perform the service properly. Best of luck.

Thanks for your reply. But can you just clarify the following if it is ok with you?

If serving the summons via Registered Mail is it mandatory to send it “return receipt” or just “registered” mail is good enough.

Dear javaking66:

Greetings. When serving someone by mail, it is generally certified mail with a return receipt requested in the state of North Carolina. Best of luck.

Is serving summons by DHL acceptable in those countries where USPS does not provide “return receipt” facility?

If serving the summons via Registered Mail is it mandatory to send it “return receipt” or just “registered” mail is good enough. The reason I ask is because USPS does not provide “return receipt” facility to all countries.
