On April 4th the New Jersey Professional Process Servers Association held an emergency meeting to discuss proposed Rule 1:32-2A and what comments NJPPSA would submit in response.
The primary discussion centered around process servers having access to electronic signatures and the ability to e-file affidavits which would eliminate the need to have affidavits notarized. Instead process servers would have a registered e-signature which they could then use to electronically sign and file all affidavits.
Comments are invited by the New Jersey Judiciary until May 1st. In the time prior to that it was decided upon by the members that comments should be submitted on behalf of process servers to request the ability to file affidavits electronically and have an e-signature. While the final wording of the comments has not been settled, a draft has been created.
