A question arose whether the affidavit of service is in compliance with the laws of the Russian Federation.


Instructions for service of Summons are discussed in sections 113 through 117 of the Civil Procedural Code of the Russian Federation.

A person expected to participate in a legal proceeding (Defendant) is required to be notified so by a Summons, an official letter sent by certified mail with return receipt, or by any other means that would ensure delivery to the addressee (including personal delivery).

A Summons, as one of the accepted forms of judicial notifications, is to be delivered to a person expected to participate in a legal proceeding well in advance to ensure they have adequate time to prepare for the proceeding.

A Summons in matrimonial matters is to be delivered in person unless otherwise instructed.

Thus, pursuant to laws and regulations of the Russian Federation, I submit this affidavit to declare the aforementioned Affidavit of Service is valid.

Articles and consultations authored by attorney reflect the state of law as of the date of their writing. The laws change daily. Users of this site are advised to consult attorney regarding their situation.
