What is a 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 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 delivers the legal documents to an individual or defendant named in the court proceedings. 

What is process serving?

Process serving is the service of a summons, court proceedings, dissolution of marriage (divorce) applications or other legal documents. Recipients and defendants who are the subject of legal process must be personally notified, this notification is known as the service of process. Depending on the nature of the case, the documents are required to be served personally on a recipient or defendant by a process server within the time stipulated by the courts, this allows the recipient or defendant time to respond. 

Serving legal documents and court proceedings 

Process servers will visit the last known residential address or known workplace of a recipient or defendant 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 legal documents can result in a delay in the legal process.

If a process server is unable to serve the documents, they may also utilise a “substituted service.” This means delivering the documents to an individual at the address where the defendant or recipient is known to reside, with the understanding that the substitute will notify the defendant or recipient of the documents. A process server may also be able to deliver a notice to another employee at the defendants or recipients workplace.
