If the landlord checked "other" that means he is filing for a "cause" eviction.

I don't think they use a psychic to serve warrants. It is served by a Superior Court constable and if not hand delivered then posted on the door. As my colleague said the method of service shouldn't be your primary concern, resolving the judgment of eviction sshould.See question
