What Is “Proof of Personal Service”?
What orders you are asking for
The hearing date
How to respond
Who can serve?
Ask someone you know, a process server, or a law enforcement agency (for
example, a sheriff) to personally serve (give) a copy of the orders to the person to
be restrained. You cannot send the forms to that person by mail.
The server must:
Be 18 years of age or over
Not be you or anyone to be protected by the orders
(If a law enforcement agency or the process server uses a different Proof of
Service form, make sure it lists the forms served.)
How to Serve
Walk up to the person to be served.
Make sure it’s the right person. Ask the person’s name.
Give the person copies of all papers checked on Form DV-200,
Proof of Personal Service.
Fill out and sign Form DV-200.
Give the signed Form DV-200 to you.
What if the person won’t take the papers or tears
them up?
If the person won’t take the papers, just leave them near him or her.
It doesn’t matter if the person tears them up.
A “registered process server” is a business you pay to deliver court forms.
Look for “Process Serving” in the Yellow Pages or on the Internet.
The police cannot arrest anyone for violating an order unless the restrained person knows about the order.
The judge cannot make the orders permanent unless the restrained person was served.
Service lets the other person kno w:
A sheriff can serve the order at no cost to you.
Ask the server to:
Why do I have to get the orders served?
What is “service”?
Service is the act of giving your legal papers to the other person. There
are many kinds of service—in person, by mail, and others. This form is
about personal or “in-person” service. The Notice of Court Hearing
(Form DV-109), Request for Domestic Violence Restraining Order
(Form DV-100) and Temporary Restraining Order (Form DV-110)
must be served “in person.” That means someone—not you or anyone
else protected by the order—must personally “serve” (give) the person
to be restrained a copy of the forms. You cannot send them by mail.
Dont serve it by mail!
