AFFIDAVIT CONCERNING MILITARY SERVICE
JD-FM-178 Rev. 7-99 P.B. § 17-21
STATE OF CONNECTICUT SUPERIOR COURT
COURT USE ONLY
Anyone who knows the military status of the defendant may complete the form below. You must swear that your statement is true and sign it in front of a court clerk, a notary public, or an attorney who will also sign and date the affidavit. Make one copy for yourself and give the original to the court clerk. EXPLANATION: A military service affidavit is required in every case where the defendant has not filed an Appearance form with the court clerk's office by the time of the court hearing. The purpose is to protect men and women serving in the U.S. military from getting a court judgment against them without first receiving notice of the lawsuit and a chance to defend the case. The affidavit gives the court the necessary facts to find that the defendant is not in the U.S military.
