Can you receive a court summons by phone?

Like most legal questions this may vary from state to state and maybe depends on the type of summons you receive. In general you must receive a summons personally or by certified or registered mail for it to be valid in court. For example, if you get a traffic or parking ticket, the officer physically hands it to you on that there is an appearance date. You can receive a summons to appear from a duly sworn officer of a court, a process server or even from a regular person. What happens is on the date of the summons if you do not appear the judge will ask the "complaintant" or "complaining witness" if there is "Proof of Service". The return receipt of certified mail, signiture of the person receiving the summons or again the person who served the summons swearing that the summons was served. In absence of that proof a judge cannot order a bench warrant for contempt or failing to appear and in civil matters he cannot enter a judgment in your absence because you were not duly served and given opportunity to appear. A telephone call or even a faxed or emailed summons will not cover the burden of "proof of service" and if someone does it this way and then swears proof of service and either a judgment is entered or a warrant issued you can request to have it set aside because you were never served. This happened to me once when I was representing myself in family court to request an emergency custody hearing for Christmas visitation and I had the summons which I created as well as the proof of service document for the court and I handed her the summons in the waiting area of the courthouse. She claimed that it was an illegal service and asked a sheriffs officer if I could subpeona her like that and he said of course. I filled out the proof of service and had the officer witness it. It was an unnecesary step but when she didnt show for the hearing it served as proof and she ended up losing by default. Anyway, I would check in your state and see what the law is and as technology improves who knows, one day your computer might suddenly have a message saying "You have been served".
