As a dedicated Buffalo Divorce Attorney, people often ask me how to go about serving divorce papers on their spouse.
- The first step is filing the summons in the clerk’s office, after which the attorney will hire a process server to take the summons and physically hand that paperwork to the other spouse.
- If the husband and wife are getting along, the other person is invited to pick up the papers – and thereby save the fee that would go to the process server.
- If that’s not possible, a process server will serve the other party with that summons.
