Process Serving FAQs

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.

Turn-around-times vary.   However, this is something that is usually determined by the client and is usually reflected in their fees.

We provide our clients with in field status and service complete reports.   Each report contains details, date, time and the GPS coordinate with photo for undisputed service evidence.   
Each report is sent to a designated email.   This innovative tool keeps job status at our clients’ fingertips.   In the office, at home, or somewhere else altogether, our clients can access
the status of their papers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!   We are also happy to provide phone assistance to our clients without computer access.

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.   Please refer to the service of process laws in your state for additional information regarding accepted serving procedures.

We generate a Certificate of Service when service is complete.   We can also generate an affidavit or use your affidavit if you have a specific one which is required to be used.

We require payment at the time your Work Order is being submitted with your documents.   Your payment will be processed securely through PayPal.
