Can I serve papers if I’m involved in the case?

According to the New York court system, any adult and organization listed in the case must be served with its own set of papers such as summons and complaint, a notice of petition and petition, a motion, and more. In New York, the person serving the documents must be 18 years old or older, and the person serving the papers is not allowed to serve more than five papers each year.

You cannot serve legal papers of a case that you are involved in. If legal papers are not delivered the way the law says, the papers may not count. The judge can call for the dismissal of the case if he or she thinks that the legal documents are not served by the legal document server in a proper way.
