• Method of service
• Date of service
• Name and address of the individual served
Although similar to the Affidavit of Service (Proof of Service), the Certificate of Service is a separate document that must be filed within a set number of days of filing the initial complaint.
Not all jurisdictions require a certificate of service; always verify the rules and requirements with your local court.
A failure to file a certificate of service may result in a Notice of Failure to Comply and sanctions imposed by the court.
