Residential servcie by posting is adequate service in most "in rem" actions, and some personal actions.It may not be sufficient where amoney judgmetn is sought. Before a defendant relies on an assumption of non-servcie, they should go over all the facts with an attorney in their area. Many attorneys offer a free or low cost initial consultation.

Good luck
