LEO: Domestic Relations - Conflict of Interest LE Op. 689
Domestic Relations - Conflict of Interest - Acceptance of Service -
Waivers - Unrepresented Defendant.
May 10, 1985
It would not be improper for the complainant's attorney to prepare
acceptance of service for signature by an unrepresented defendant in a
divorce case so long as the acceptance of service document is limited to
that administerial function only. It would be improper for a complainant's
attorney to prepare a "Waiver of Rights Under Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil
Relief Act" in a divorce case since the waiver of rights would involve
substantially more than a mere administerial act. [ LE Op. 644, LE Op.
