Do you have any suggestions for "getting more
If your process server doesn't know how to get more creative, I suggest you look for one who does.
The court tells me I need "ample" proof to
get a motion for alternate service.
"Ample" is whatever you submit to the judge to convince him to allow alternate service. If he says yes it was ample. If he says no, it wasn't.
As I wrote before, since you know where she lives, it's highly unlikely that the judge will allow other than personal service.
Your process server is just going to have to sit on her house till she comes out, or follow her to work and use use the old special delivery ploy, or something else that works.
I guess we just want permission to leave it
with an over 18 party or tack it on the
door...but I don't know what we need toget
And your process server has no experience with defendants where alternate service was allowed?
I think you need another process server.
