In a prior blog on this firm’s websites, we looked at the general rules for serving a summons and complaint on an individual in New Jersey. Let’s look at some of the variations in that process.
A minor under the age of 14 must be served by delivery to either his parent, his guardian or a competent adult member of the household with whom the minor resides.
A mentally incapacitated person must be served by delivery to her legal guardian or a competent adult member of the household with whom the minor resides. If the person lives in an institution, then the director or chief executive officer may be served.
