4:4-3. By Whom Served; (Amendment effective Sept 5, 2000)
(a) Summons and Complaint. Summonses shall be served,
together with a copy of the complaint, by the sheriff,
or by a person specially appointed by the court for that
purpose, or by plaintiff's attorney or the attorney's agent,
or by any other competent adult not having a direct interest
in the litigation
. If personal service cannot be effected after
a reasonable and good faith attempt, which shall be described
with specificity in the proof of service required by R. 4:4-7,
service may be made by mailing a copy of the summons and complaint
by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, to the
usual place of abode of the defendant or a person authorized by
rule of law to accept service for the defendant or, with postal
instructions to deliver to addressee only, to defendant's place
of business or employment. If the addressee refuses to claim or
accept delivery of registered or certified mail, service may be
made by ordinary mail addressed to the defendant's usual place
of abode. The party making service may, at the party's option,
make service simultaneously by registered or certified mail and
ordinary mail, and if the addressee refuses to claim or accept
delivery of registered mail and if the ordinary mailing is not
returned, the simultaneous mailing shall constitute effective
service. Mail may be addressed to a post office box in lieu of
a street address only as provided by R. 1:5-2. Return of service
shall be made as provided by R. 4:4-7.

(b) Writs. Unless the court otherwise orders, all writs and
process to enforce a judgment or order shall be served by the sheriff.
