Serve your Response to Form Interrogatories by mail

After you've finished your responses, you must serve them to your spouse. One way to do this is by mail, called mail service. This means another adult, not you, mails a copy of your responses and any attached documents to your spouse.

How to serve your response

  • Make copes if your response

    • Make 1 copy of the Response to Form Interrogatories- Family Law
    • Keep the copy for yourself, and serve the original by mail

    If you have to provide documents, make a copy and include the copy with your Response to Form Interrogatories. Have the copy of the attachments served.   

  • Choose your Server

    You can't serve papers yourself. Ask another adult to mail the papers. This is your server.  

    Your server must be: 

    • 18 or over, and 

    • not part of your case. 

    Your server can be someone you know or a professional process server you hire. 

  • Have your server mail the papers

    Your server mails the papers to your spouse or partner unless they have a lawyer. If they have a lawyer, mail the papers to their lawyer.  

    Your server should note the date they mailed the papers. They need this information to fill out the Proof of Service form. 

  • Fill out Proof of Service form

    You can use Proof of Service by Mail(form FL-335).  

    It helps if you fill in the top part of the form with the case and court information.    

    Your server can then fill in the information about how, when, and where they served the papers. Your server must then sign the form.  

  • Keep the Proof of Service

    Keep the Proof of Service for your records in case you later need to prove that Response to Form Interrogatories- Family Law were served. 

After you've served your responses you're done with this part. If anything in the information you gave your spouse changes, you will need to update your answers and serve them a copy of your updated answers.
