What Does a Process Server Do?
Process servers are an integral part of the legal process, specializing in filing court papers, serving legal documents, and a host of related tasks. Process servers “serve” legal documents to defendants and others involved in a legal case. Once the documents are served, process servers must provide a notarized affidavit or proof of service to the person(s) who requested the service. The serving process must follow the requirements of state law, which vary from state to state
Why Is Process Serving Important?
Process Serving is an integral component of “due process,” a right afforded to all U.S. citizens. Papers must be served properly and legally – if not, a legal case can literally be thrown out of court. Experienced process servers are best equipped to serve papers legally and expediently.
