The summons & complaint is served to the debtor either by mail or in person via a Sheriff's or Baliff's office.
Personal Service vs. Personal Delivery - Some jurisdictions require personal service on the debtor. This means that the summons & complaint must be hand delivered to the debtor. Other jurisdictions only require personal delivery, where the summons & complaint can be left at the premises with a person of suitable age and responsibility.
