Humphreys v. Humpreys

Domestic Relations: Motion to Set Aside for Improper Service

Case: Humphreys v. Humphreys, 2006

Synopsis: The sole material issue in the case was whether adequate service of process was effected on Respondent in the dissolution proceeding. Judge Rasmussen determined that even if substituted service was invalid, the facts denote service of process “in a manner reasonably calculated to apprise the defendant of the existence and pendency of the action and to afford a reasonable opportunity to appear and defend.” Therefore, Respondent’s Motion to Set Aside Order of Default and General Judgement was denied.
