Process servers are an essential part of our justice system, but not everyone understands what process servers do and when they might need one. Process service is more than just delivering documents—it’s about ensuring notice and due process under the law.
The Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution states that no one shall be “deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law.” Process servers are an essential part of ensuring due process, as they provide individuals’ notice that they have been sued.
Specific Rules of Service
Many types of papers have specific requirements for service; and if those requirements are not properly adhered to the service may be rendered void. Professional process servers will be familiar with the Rules of Service and ensure that all regulations and requirements are followed regarding such. Please keep in mind that improper service can be fatal to your case.
