Process service brings a knot to most peoples stomach. Either appearing for a traffic ticket, divorce, or maybe even an eviction. When it comes to process service, you are a party to the case and therefore cannot serve them yourself. Process service is the technical term of someone, namely the Sheriff, Constable or Process server giving your named defendant/respondent the legal documents. While all three mentioned technically do the same thing, they are not the same. In general, the Sheriff and Constable make one attempt at noon on a workday. Lastly, Certified Process Servers are small business entrepreneurs that are required to take county exams and mandated to continuing education each year. Process servers make attempts at odd hours such as nights and weekends.
Tips and tricks: Some things you can do to ensure that the process server obtains service is to give as much information as possible. Information that can be tremendously helpful. Having a picture of the defendant could be the difference of obtaining service or being lied to and leaving without serving the defendant. The next may be the hours that you know the defendant is home. Guessing is not helping. Please let you server know the kind of vehicle the defendant drives. While license plates would be an asset, the simple make and color of the vehicle would be great. Please get your papers to your server as soon as you can. Even if you don’t have the correct address, or missing an apartment number or have no address at all. The more time you give your server, the more effective they can be. Lastly, do not taunt or let the defendant know you are suing or serving them, they will hide from the server.
