Process Service Overview
Process Service operations involve locating and serving an individual or entity with legal documents compelling them to appear in court, depositions, or produce documents in accordance with an on-going legal matter. Subpoenas can prove useful in criminal, civil, family court settings.
Serving a subpoena to someone means tracking them down. A trained investigator begins this process by utilizing their access to specialized location and background databases to determine the whereabouts of the individual who must served with the subpoena or other legal document. Reports related to the location of the party in question can be provided to the client upon request.
Service of Process
The assigned Process Server or investigator delivers the subpoena to the correct party in a polite, yet assertive manner. In cases where it is a business or other entity being served, the person tasked with service will deliver to the correct party within that organization.
The Process Server remains available to testify and offer documentation related to the service in case of dispute.
