Are documents served in another country valid in New York court
2 Answers from Attorneys
They are valid if they are properly served.
It does not matter whether documents are served within or outside of the country. What is important is that the documents are service properly in accordance with New York laws of civil procedure and, if applicable, the Hague Convention on service of documents abroad--the proper method of service will vary depending on which country your are referring to.
