I filed a restraining order against my sons father who lives with me. I plan to have a family member serve him today but he presently isnt home does he have to be present to be served or could they just leave it at the door of his room?
He has to be personally served. Is there a kick out order with the Restraining Order? If so, why are you not have the sheriff or police serve him? Obviously he cannot remain in the same house if you have a restraining order issued. Good luck.
He has to be personally served. Posting at the door of his room is not an option for a temporary restraining order. It would be better to have him served by a law enforcement officer to make sure things do not escalate and he is escorted off the property if the temporary restraining order involves a kick out order. Good luck to you.
