Service of Process of an Order to Show Cause (OSC) or Special Proceeding

On occasion a case may be commenced by filing of a summons and complaint, the plaintiff may immediately obtain an OSC, and the plaintiff may serve the summons and complaint and the OSC at the same time. In such a situation, or when a special proceeding is brought on by Verified Petition and OSC, personal service is almost always required by the court. You must obtain two original affidavits of service from the server.

One original affidavit of service must be filed with the County Clerk’s Office, immediately after service is done.

The second affidavit of service is submitted to the Judge on the return date of the OSC. Make a copy of the affidavit of service for your records.  If service cannot be made as required in the OSC, the court may allow service another way, after a written request is made by the plaintiff or petitioner.
