SERVICE OF DUE PROCESS—What is it?

What is process service? It is the due process required by the courts in most lands that must be followed in order to bring a person or company to court.

WHAT A PROCESS SERVER IS NOT

Process servers may serve legal papers, but they are not Private Investigators. They may reasonably perform their duties in order to serve due process only. Some process servers say they conduct surveillance. They do not. They conduct a "stakeout" which means they wait for the person to come or go in order to hand them the papers -- the serve.

WHAT LEGAL DOCUMENTS A PROCESS SERVER MAY SERVE

Delivery of official court documents informing a person to appear in court at a certain date and time, is often referred to as “process.” The licensed private investigators and process servers of PRIVATE may serve the following:

  • Subpoenas: A subpoena is a type of court order which is used to let a person know that they are supposed to testify before a court.

  • Complaints: A complaint is a legal document that explains why a person is being sued.

  • Writs: A writ is an order given, in writing, by a court.

  • Summonses: A summons is the actual order given to appear in whichever court is listed on the summons.

In addition to serving these papers, the following can also be served: Civil summons, civil complaint, forcible detainer action, eviction, garnishments, orders of protection, injunctions prohibiting harassment, petitions for supplemental proceedings, child support, divorce papers, and collection letters. A process server can also file papers with a court for you.
