Alabama Long-Arm Statute
Ala. R. Civ. P. 4.2
Rule 4.2. Process: Limits of effective service.
(a) In-state service. All process may be
served anywhere in this state and, when authorized by law or by these rules, may
be served outside this state.
(b) Basis for out-of-state service. An
appropriate basis exists for service of process outside of this state upon a
person or entity in any action in this state when the person or entity has such
contacts with this state that the prosecution of the action against the person
or entity in this state is not inconsistent with the constitution of this state
or the Constitution of the United States; or, the person or entity is sued in
the capacity of guardian of a ward, or executor, administrator, or other
personal representative of an estate, for the acts or omissions of a decedent or
ward, and the person or entity so sued does not otherwise have sufficient
contacts with this state in that capacity, but the decedent or ward would have
been deemed to have sufficient contacts with this state if the action could have
been maintained against the decedent or ward.
(dc) District court rule. Rule 4.2 applies in
the district courts.
