Typically, service is made by leaving a summons & complaint at someone's "abode" or residence. Some types of actions require serving a defendant "in-hand", such as Contempt Motions usually. Small claims probably just requires abode service. The Plaintiff should have...View More
A New Hampshire attorney could answer you best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It could be an exercise in frustration to go after it because you could be losing a good chunk of a day of work, filing fees, and preparation of documents, going back and taking photos to prove your point...View More

This is not a civil rights issue. If it wasn't registered then the owner of the property has rights. You should have notified them about your car being on the property without an inspection sticker.

Brought it to meineke after purchase to find out the entire rear frame and control arms are rotted out, one was broken the other was about to go. This car was not at all safe to be driven and could have killed me and possibly others... View More
