Process Serving Info

What is service of process?

Service of process is the action or procedure by which a person or entity is given legal notice. The term “process” is the general term for the legal document that is being served (delivered). The term most commonly applies to the Summons (a paper that informs a defendant of a lawsuit). However, process can include many types of legal documents, subpoenas, complaints/petitions, orders, motions, writs, etc.

Why choose to use a professional process server?

A key reason for choosing a process server is that they are unbiased individuals with no relationship to the action in question and in most states required to be licensed/registered. They must affirm to their credentials when preparing affidavits.

Process Servers are held to a strong code of ethics and professionalism. Many states (such as Nevada) require that they pass a background check. In Nevada, process servers must be registered and employed by a licensed company. Process serving businesses in Nevada are governed by the Nevada Attorney General, through the Private Investigator’s Licensing Board.

Professional Process Servers must be knowledgeable of the various civil and criminal codes of procedure for the court of jurisdiction. They are required to effect service in accordance with these codes/statutes and must present an accurate affidavit upon completion that will support the service.

What are the most common methods for effecting service of process?

The three (3) most common methods for proper service of process are:

  1. Personal service – Service effected to the named party, by delivery of the documents to that individual and/or delivery to an agent/officer of a business/corporate entity;
  2. Sub Service or Substitute Service – Service c/o a co-resident of the target party. The co-resident must be of suitable age and discretion. Criteria for the co-resident can vary per state. Some courts require that a copy of the Summons and/or full set of the documents also be mailed in the event of substitute service.
  3. Service via publication – This is many times a last choice option. Many courts will require that supporting documentation, such as affidavits of non-service (attempted service) and/or due diligence accompany a plaintiff’s request or motion for service via publication.

There are other possible options for effecting service; however, the 3 noted above are the most common.

What else can a process server do for me?

A process server can be a client’s extra hands and a critical part of their team. LPS is committed to being such a service company. Please contact us to discuss how we can assist you and/or to discuss other possible options for effecting service of process.
