RULE 7. SERVICE AFTER SUMMONS
(a) In General. After the original summons has been served and jurisdiction has been established, service of papers in a juvenile proceeding may be made under this rule.
(b) Serving an Attorney. If a party is represented by an attorney, service under this rule must be made on the attorney unless the court orders service on the party.
(c) Means of Service. A paper is served under this rule by:
(1) handing it to the person;
(2) leaving it:
(A) at the person's office with a clerk or other person in charge or, if no one is in charge, in a conspicuous place in the office; or
(B) if the person has no office or the office is closed, at the person's dwelling or usual place of abode with someone of suitable age and discretion who resides there;
(3) mailing it to the person's last known address -- in which event service is complete upon mailing;
(4) if no address is known, and on order of the court, leaving it with the clerk of the court;
(5) sending it by electronic means if the person consented in writing -- in which event service is complete upon transmission, but is not effective if the serving party learns that it did not reach the person to be served; or
(6) delivering it by any other means that the person consented to in writing -- in which event service is complete when the person making service delivers it to the agent designated to make delivery.
