Proof of service by county clerk is it valid ?

Asked about 1 year ago - Manteca, CA

I'm confused the person that the clerk served by mail for me didnt sign the proof of service card her husband did at the same address. She filed a motion to vacate. Is the fact that he signed it make it still valid or invalid because she didnt directly sign it?

Additional information

She was also served the minutes by the judge 2 times. The judge had to change the court date twice. The judge used the clerk certified mail. does that count ? also my roommate personally served her.

    Answered . Your question is a bit incomplete, but my guess is that you are referring to a small claims court lawsuit wherein you asked the clerk of the court to effectuate service of the Plaintiff's Claim via certified mail? If so, the actual defendant you are suing must sign the return receipt on the certified mail. Otherwise, the defendant can challenge the service and file a motion to vacate the default judgment.
