What is legal Process Serving?

Process serving is when legal documents--summons, complaints, subpoenas, order to show cause, writs and other court documents--are delivered to the individual to whom the legal document is directed. In several states, including California, a licensed or registered process serving agent must perform the delivery or service of these legal documents.

What does a Process Server do?

A legal process server delivers or serves legal documents like writs, summons, subpoenas, complaints and other court documents to a defendant or an individual involved in a court case. The process server must serve the documents in accordance with the legislation in the area of service. This may mean handing the documents to the defendant personally or sub-serving to someone in the same household or business. Once the documents are delivered, the process serving agent must provide proof that the papers were served. This is done through a document call an Affidavit of Service, also called a Proof of Service, which must be notarized and given to the party who requested service.

Do I need a Process Server?

Hiring a legal process server is an important step in proceeding with a court case. In some states, including California, someone who performs service of process is required by law to be licensed, so if you are in one of these states, the answer is simply, yes.

Even if a process server does not need to be licensed in the state where you need service, you should keep in mind that a process server is someone who is experienced in serving legal documents efficiently. More importantly, professional process servers are knowledgeable of the legislation surrounding service of process in their state or county. If the service is not performed in accordance with the law, this can hinder your case from going forward, or result in the dismissal of your case. Improper service also delays obtainment of evidence, which can cause injunctions, court fees and attorney fees.
