  • What is Service of Process?
  • United States legal procedure requires that each party in a case be notified if actions are taken against them in a court of law. Process serving is an important aspect of the Due Process of Law to insure notification.

    Process serving laws and rules of civil procedure vary from state to state. People are notified of actions against them or court procedures involving them through the delivery of legal documents such as summons, complaints, subpoenas, orders to show cause, and writs.

  • What if the person does not accept the papers?
  • In most cases service does not have to be accepted to be considered effective. If the defendant comes to the door but refuses the papers, the process server may just have to leave them at their feet and walk away. In some states, proper service has been perfected if the person admits to being the defendant and/or they actually touch or are touched with the papers. Please refer to the service of process laws in your state for additional information regarding accepted serving procedures.
  • Do you provide an affidavit or return of service?
  • We generate an affidavit when service is complete. We can also use your affidavit if you have a specific one that needs to be used.
