He tooled the papers and after he held it his father slap the papers out of his hand and told him to get in the car cause they was not served when we actually did served him, his father then proceeded to throw the papers at me while I was holding his grandson my neighbor picked back up the papers and put it on his car he then got out the car and threw it at me again repeatedly then drove away. Did he got served?
A: Yes, this appears to be good service. Your obligation is to give him the papers – there’s no obligation on your part to ensure he keeps the papers. The neighbor should complete an affidavit of service. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
