WHAT are Process Servers?
Process Servers are dedicated individuals who serve legal documents and do the procedure of giving appropriate notice of initial legal action to another party.
Such a procedure is known as Process Service. The primary role of process servers is to deliver valuable legal documents to a defendant or persons involved in a court case.
Process servers are legally required to properly serve legal documents based on the guidelines laid out by their state.
After serving the legal documents, they should provide a notarized proof of service to the person or company who required those documents to be served.
They also are needed not just in serving various legal documents but also other tasks such as filing court papers and document retrieval.
Process Servers play a major significance in upholding due process of the law. By ensuring highly effective and proper delivery of valuable court documents, also known as “process”, individuals with cases will be informed and courts may properly rule on a case.
Some examples of legal documents being distributed by Process Servers are the following:
