Non-Military Affidavit

When submitting default requests or petitions to the Court, Federal law requires submitting a Certificate of Active Duty Status along with the request. The Federal website requires the birthdate or Social Security number of the non-responsive party to generate the certificate. Also include the first name in the search form. It is not required for the search, but it is required by this Court for the certificate or affidavit to be accepted.

Download a Request for Order of Default (PDF) form from the Maryland Courts website.
