What if the person does not accept the papers?

Author: Mock Webware |

In most cases the person being served a document does not have to accept service to be considered effective or sufficient according to the Rules of Civil Procedures in Ontario. If the defendant or respondent comes to the door but refuses the papers being served, the process server may just have to leave them at their feet and then walk away. Service performed in this manner is “legally executed” as long targeted person is properly identified and described. Our process servers use worksheets to keep notes, records with details of their task, always available as exhibits in Court. Our clients would be able to call Motion Legal Services Limited as a witness to attest to the service of the document.
