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.
