Filling out Motion to Serve by Mail or Publication

If the following applies, does your motion (FL All Family 104 or 108) explain…

  • Why you believe the other person does or does not live in Washington.
  • Whether there is a known address for the other party.
  • Your reasonable efforts to locate and personally serve the other party.
  • Any undue hardship that will be caused if personal service is required.
  • Why you believe the other party is avoiding service.

*Caution! Service by Mail or Publication is very technical. The court may not be able to address some issues in every case. See an attorney for help.
