Rule 2-5. Proof of Service

   Except as otherwise provided by statute, or by order of the court, proof of service of any pleading, motion, or other paper required to be served shall be made by: (1) a certificate by or on behalf of counsel showing the name and address on whom service was had; (2) written receipt of the opposing party or his or her attorney; (3) affidavit of the person making service; (4) return of the county sheriff; or (5) other proof satisfactory to the court. Failure to make proof of service will not affect the validity of the service, and the court may at any time allow the proof of service to be amended or supplied unless it clearly appears that to do so would result in material prejudice to substantial rights of any party affected thereby.

Adopted effective September 22, 1995.
