California Process Serving

What is a process server?

According to United States legal procedure, all parties must be notified if they are facing legal action against them in a court of law. Notification (called service of process) is accomplished through delivery of documents describing the legal action, and those documents include subpoenas, complaints, summonses, writs and order to show cause.

What does a professional process server do?

A process server is responsible for delivering legal documents to the parties involved in court proceedings. Some states require process servers to be licensed or registered, and all process servers must adhere to all state regulations governing legal service of process.

Process servers typically locate the individual named on the document, travel to that person to deliver the documents, verify the person's identity before handing over the papers, and then provide their client with a signed proof of service. This proof of service - also called the affidavit of service - details the time, date and location of the service of process, and the subject's name. It is the document you can present in court to verify that successful service of process occurred.

Why do I need a process server?

Service of process must be carried out by a professional who understands the state laws, is well-versed on best practices and is licensed if required in that state. Any failure to follow legal procedures can result in legal issues for other parties in the court case, which is why you should leave service of process to a professional. An experienced and knowledgeable process server will do everything by the book and make it easy to demonstrate that you fairly notified the other parties of impending legal action.

What are Courier Services?

A courier refers to one who delivers messages, packages or mail. Our courier services give you the confidence that ensure your most important documents are arriving to their destination with speed, security, tracking, and specialization. Our express services are individualized to fit everyone's needs, so documents arrive safely and securely.
