Can court papers be served to a minor in California?

If the person who has been intended to be served with court papers isn't present, can the papers be served to that person's daughter (who is a minor)? For instance, if the adult (who is having a lawsuit filed against them in superior court) is not home, and their child answers the door and they tell the person serving the papers that they are under 18 would it still be legal for the sheriff to hand the papers to the minor and count them as being served? Even if they have been granted substituted service, would it be legal for a minor to be involved? I've read that it depends on the state, in this case the state would be California and the county would be Los Angeles. Is there a website that would supply me with this information? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

You're talking about either a subpoena, which is a writ issued by a court, or in some states by lawyers, to a person to compel testimony, or summons, which is addressed to a defendant in a legal proceeding. In either case the subpoena or summons has to be put into the hand of the person it's sent to, otherwise that person has the legal right to say they never saw it.
