States With Laws Prohibiting Holiday Service


State Laws Prohibiting Service of Process on Sundays/Holidays

All state court papers should be served in accordance with the law of the state having original jurisdiction (where the complaint is filed).

Several states do not permit documents to be served on Sundays or Holidays, but some of these states will permit service under special circumstances pursuant to Court Order.

If you live in a state where Sunday service is not permitted, it is your obligation to include this information in your instruction sheet when forwarding work to out-of-state members. See the Rules of Procedure section at the beginning of each state�s listing for a more detailed explanation of the statutes cited here.
