    The Officers and Board of Directors of the Arizona Process Servers Association (APSA), having reviewed the rebuttal comments submitted by the State Bar of Arizona, Arizona Commission on Access to Justice, and Committee on Family Court, and in consideration of internal polling showing other than a unanimous declaration of support, APSA hereby withdraws the instant petition.

    In making this withdrawal, it should be noted that in current practice (as well as the intention should the proposed rule changes have been approved), process servers do not ask for identification from a party being served, whether a minor or adult, barring extraordinary circumstances.

    In consideration of opposition, APSA withdraws the instant Petition.

    Respectfully submitted,
    Arizona Process Servers Association
