Detroit, MI asked in Child Support for Michigan

Q: Can I serve my ex wife child support papers by certified mail? What return address should I use?

I have custody of my children and I already have a child support case started. They're just waiting to serve her. She lives in California and I live in Michigan. She probably won't sign the papers willingly.

A: If it is sent by mail it should be by registered mail, return receipt requested and restricted delivery.
