What is a legal process server?

A process server is someone who personally delivers notifications of impending legal action or court proceedings. Process servers may serve notifications on a variety of court related matters and legal proceedings. The process server must prove the legal documents were served on the recipient or defendant, this is usually accomplished by swearing an affidavit of service. The service of process occurs when a process server personally delivers the legal documents to an individual or defendant named in the court proceedings or is instructed by the courts to serve the documents in accordance with an order for substituted service.

Serving legal documents and court proceedings

Process servers will visit the last known residential address or known workplace of a recipient to personally serve the documents. Due to the time sensitive nature of the documents they deliver, our process servers will always act with urgency. Process servers are an essential part of the legal process, because improperly served court proceedings can result in a delay in the legal process.
