When there's no time to lose, a local Process Server will move quickly to guarantee their first attempt be made within 24 hours of receipt, and paperwork submitted within 24 hours of completion.
Also referred to as "Individual Service," the respondent must be served personally. A Process Server MUST ask if they're in the military & provide a description of the respondent on the Affidavit of Service.
Often referred to as "Substituted Service" a respondent may be served via third party; anyone who is of age or authorized to accept on behalf of the respondent, including government or corporate, representatives.
Property Managers rely on rents to support their businesses. A professional Process Server will ensure that 14 Day Notice(s) and Notice(s) of Petition are served and filed correctly.

A local Process Server will pick up your documents and deliver or file them, and scan & return a stamped copy of the first page to you at no additional cost, as well as request old case files & provide copies for you when ready.
Beyond the initial attempt to verify an address, searching for a respondent may include various online directories & social media platforms, checking with old neighbors, family, friends, colleagues, and use of other investigative methods & resources.
What To Expect
Generally speaking, we believe that sales training is far more practical than tactical. The number one most important skill to develop as a Professional Process Server is the ability to politely ask direct questions in order to determine the identity of the person they're speaking with, and their relationship to the respondent (if not the respondent). Service of Process happens very quickly, and the ability to retain notes regarding the physical description of a respondent may include age, race, gender, height, weight, hair color (and length), eye color, whether or not they wore glasses, or other distinguishing features & characteristics is critical for accurate reporting.
