American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com Note on "Service of Process": "Service of Process" is the way that a defendant is notified that a legal case has been started against them. The court tells a proper officer (usually a state marshal) to deliver certain papers to the defendant. In a divorce (dissolution of marriage) or legal separation case, the officer must deliver a Summons, Family Actions (form JD-FM-3), Divorce Complaint (Dissolution of Marriage) (form JD-FM-159), and Notice of Automatic Orders (form JD-FM-158). The officer must deliver the papers to the defendant in person or at the defendant's home. If service of process has not been done, the defendant may file a motion to dismiss the case because the court does not have jurisdiction (the ability to issue a ruling) over them. However, the following are ways that a defendant may accept that the court has jurisdiction over them and waive (give up) their right to be properly served. · If the defendant files a pleading with the court that responds to the plaintiff's complaint; or · If the defendant does not file a motion to dismiss the case within 30 days of the date when they file an Appearance (form JD-CL-12) with the court. In cases where the defendant has not been served with process, but the parties have an agreement and want to proceed immediately to a decree of divorce (dissolution of marriage) or legal separation under Section 5 of Public Act 15-7, the defendant may waive their right to service of process, if: · The defendant completes and submits to the court the Certification of Waiver of Service of Process Cases Proceeding under Section 5 of Public Act 15-7, on Page 1 of this form (form JD-FM-249).
