Illinois Legal Aid explains that a summons must be properly served by the sheriff, a private process server, or Certified Mail. If a lawsuit involves multiple defendants, each defendant must be served separately. Anyone who believes he has been improperly served may ask the judge to delay the case until proper service has been accomplished. A summons to appear in court should never be ignored.
