4 Questions to Ask When Hiring a Process Server

Choosing the right process server depends on your own due diligence. After you’ve thoroughly researched a few candidates, you’ll want to conduct interviews with each one. But what are the best questions to ask once they’re sitting down in front of you? Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Are you certified with your state and jurisdiction?businessman interviewing process server at table

A qualified process server should be appropriately certified with their state and jurisdiction. Checking for certifications will ensure that you have a process server who is above board and qualified to serve in the appropriate region. A good process server should also be FSC accredited and certified with the National Association of Professional Process Servers.

How many years have you been a process server?

Years of experience does not always equal a high-quality process server, but it usually does. It pays to hire a process server who knows the ins and outs of the industry.

How long will it take to complete service?

There are many factors that can impact the time it takes to serve process. However, a good process server should be able to provide you with a service time frame estimate depending on the job you want completed.

What tools and resources do you use?

Understanding a process server’s methods and practices can help you determine if they’re a right fit for your organization. See what kinds of tools and resources a process server utilizes. A good process server will use methods that are both efficient and legal, and anything less may not hold up in court.
