Thank you for your reply. So there must be some state and/or county dept to which I can send a letter. This may seem trivial to some people, but by lying that she served me personally on the 6th, when I actually received the item in my mailbox on the 9th, I was under an illusion that I had 3 more calendar days to figure out my approach, while I was busy with my husband in critical care in the hospital. I figured my approach in time, but I do feel the server should be reported. For the legal services company that hired her (and would take no responsibility, as she is an "independent contractor," although the legal services phone is listed on the court paperwork), I suppose I can only resort to the Better Business Bureau? Thank you.
And needless to say, she didn't put any detailed info on what she left in my mailbox, no date of service, who served, etc. Only at the legal clinic at the courthouse did I find out what she filed with the court, and paid to obtain a copy with all the proper information.
