Today we have another installment of “How Not To React When You Are Served With Court Papers.” Most people when they are served with court papers react appropriately. They do not attack the process server or verbally lash out at them. They do not show the papers to their children. They do not just throw the papers away. Most people have the good sense to consult promptly with an attorney about the court papers with which they have been served.

Then there are the people who react the wrong way. This Albany Times Union story tells what happened to a woman who was served with Family Court papers. She decided to get drunk and then drive to the State Police Station in Schodack to complain to the Police. Things did not end well for her. Needless to say, this probably will hurt her case in Family Court.
