What to Do

By Anna Von Reitz


Thanks to impeccable and duly noted and honored reasoning, we can all prove which jurisdictions the courts are operating in. There are only three (3) choices: Administrative (Corporate Tribunals addressing their own employees), Admiralty (Military Law of the Sea) and Maritime (Otherwise known as Commercial Law, or the Law of Contracts).

None of these jurisdictions represented by these courts happen to be competent to address average Americans. So in order to gain jurisdiction over you and subject you to their law, they have to pretend that you are something or someone else.

It’s that simple.

The way to respond to them is equally simple, no matter which of the three choices they invoke.

If you receive mail, citations, court documents, summons, etc. and it is addressed in your name or what appears to be a variation of your name in all capitals, like this: JOANNE K WARBURY, it’s either an Administrative Court or a Maritime Court, presuming that you are responsible for the creation and administration of a Uniform Code Contract Trust of some kind.

If you receive mail addressed to what appears to be your Proper Name addressed in Upper and Lower Case, like this: Joanne Warbury, it’s an Admiralty Court, pretending that you are some kind of Officer or Enlisted Person. For example, if you have mistakenly agreed to act as a “Taxpayer” they can presume that you have voluntarily agreed to collect taxes for the Queen and are acting as a Warrant Officer in the British Merchant Marine Service.

The moment that you receive — by hand from a Process Server or via mail — any official piece of paper from any of these courts, you need to “Return Service”. They have offered you the “service” of making a contract offer. The proper response is to “Return Service”.

So, here are the steps you will need to “Return Service” to any and all of these courts:

1. Take the Summons or Charges or Citation or whatever other piece of paper you first receive, and a red ink pen (which in their signal lingo means “Land Jurisdiction”) and you write across the top of the page — without quotation marks — “Returned Service: No UCC Contract Trust and no Territorial Office.”

2. Directly under this one sentence and on the right side of the page, you sign using the same red ink pen and using a by-line like this– By: Ruth Sawyer.

3. Directly under your Signature, you write the date out, like this: August 21st of 2023.

4. Make two (2) copies of this page.

5. Take both pages directly to the Office of the Court Clerk involved and have both date stamped. Give the wet-ink original copy to the Clerk. Keep your copy for your records.

And that’s it. That’s all you should have to do, and it forestalls any further action in 90% of all cases, without further harassment.


First of all, because you have made the proper reply by “Returning Service” they can’t hold you in contempt of court.

Second, because you have already returned service to all venues — Maritime and Administrative are answered by “no UCC Contract Trust” and Admiralty is answered by “no Territorial Office”– they have no leg to stand on to pursue you like a rabbit running from one jurisdiction to the next. You’ve quashed their whole shooting match.

Now, you are probably wondering — why does she say this works in “90% of all cases” instead of all cases?

Because as I have told you repeatedly, 90% of all the Acts of Congress do not pertain to us, but what about the 10% that do?

That’s why 90% of all cases are misaddressed to us, but there are some that may actually hold water.

A few.

So let’s review that aspect to give you some more thinking points.

If you are a Federal or State-of-State Contractor, you may have Federal Income and you may owe a Federal Income Tax as a result.

If you obtained all or a substantial percentage of your retirement or pension from Federal, State-of-State, or other government service, you may owe a Federal Income Tax on that part of your retirement that derives from Federal employment— only that portion that was from Federal or “federally connected” franchise sources.

If you are licensed to sell, manufacture, or transport firearms, alcohol, or tobacco across state lines, and are caught doing something improper in pursuit of these activities, you may be subject to their courts.

If you are knowingly and voluntarily engaged in interstate commerce and are operating a registered corporation for that purpose (remember, “commerce” is business between two incorporated entities) other than a “UCC Contract Trust”, you may be subject to their courts. So if you choose to operate as an S-Corp, Non-Profit, LLC, Cooperative, etc., you may be subject to their courts.

If you are currently in the military service you are obviously subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice on the land and Admiralty Law at Sea; but did you know? — even after you have been discharged from the Services, if you do not provide a Letter of Termination to your Branch Commander, they can continue to presume that you have chosen to remain in their jurisdiction and that you are voluntarily subjecting yourself to their law? This means that every penny you subsequently earn in the private sector becomes “federally connected” and subject to Federal Income Tax. If you do not formally surrender your commission as an officer as part of your Termination Letter, you remain accountable to the military for life.

If you enter a properly ceded military base, encampment, arsenal, dock, or other facility, including a post office or federal courthouse, and cause a disturbance or violate posted warning signs or vandalize anything, you are subject to their courts.

So, you see, you can become subject to their courts and can be legitimately addressed by their courts under certain circumstances and if you voluntarily participate in federally regulated activities or choose to “reside” in their jurisdiction, they can pull your chain at will.

However, under most circumstances— and with you knowledgeably operating in your normal capacity as Joe Average American— a simple “Returned Service” process is sufficient to ward off any untoward presumptions aimed at you.
