Process Server: Frequently Asked Questions

A process server is a professional responsible for delivering official court documents, such as lawsuits, subpoenas, and legal notices, to the individuals or entities involved in a legal case.

Process servers play a crucial role in the legal system by ensuring that all parties receive proper notice of legal actions against them, allowing them the opportunity to respond and defend themselves in court.

To learn more about the importance of service of process, check out some of our blog articles on the topic like “The Hague Convention & Why It Matters.”

Process servers deliver a range of legal documents, including summonses, complaints, subpoenas, writs, and other court orders that initiate or notify individuals or entities of their involvement in a legal matter.

Process servers deliver documents to all parties involved in a legal case, including plaintiffs, defendants, witnesses, and anyone else required by the court to be informed.

Process servers employ various techniques to locate individuals, such as using public records, databases, surveillance, and skip tracing methods to ensure accurate delivery.

In cases of refusal, process servers adhere to legal guidelines, which may involve leaving the documents at the recipient’s residence or workplace, ensuring proper service.

No, personal delivery (directly handing the documents to the individual) is just one approach. Process servers may also utilize substituted service or service by publication, based on the jurisdiction’s rules.

Substituted service occurs when a process server leaves the legal documents with a responsible adult at the recipient’s home or workplace if the intended recipient is unavailable or evading service.

Service by publication is employed when the whereabouts of the individual are unknown. Legal notices are published in newspapers or other public sources to provide notice of the legal proceedings.

Generally, individuals not directly involved in the case and above a certain age can serve legal documents. However, specific jurisdictions may require process servers to be licensed or registered.

An affidavit of service is a sworn statement signed by the process server, confirming proper delivery of the legal documents to the intended recipients. It serves as evidence of service in court.

Once the process server completes delivery, legal proceedings continue, and the recipient typically has a designated time frame to respond to the documents, either by filing a response or appearing in court.

While individuals can often serve legal documents themselves, engaging a professional process server ensures proper documentation and adherence to legal requirements.


Verification of accurate process server deliveries can be done by reviewing the process server’s affidavit of service. This document provides details about when, where, and how the documents were delivered and is essential in legal proceedings.
