Service of Process | Personal Delivery Required
When a Pro se litigant or an attorney submit paperwork requesting involvement from a court, it's often incumbent upon the Petitioner to notify the Respondent under The Due Process Clause.
While all Service in New York State may be referred to as "Routine Service," Individual or Personal Service requires a Process Server to serve ONLY the respondent DIRECTLY (Personal In-Hand Delivery Required). No third party may accept on the respondent's behalf, and no other method of Service is permitted. This is common in a Divorce or in Family Court proceedings.
You or your Attorney may not Serve the opposing party directly as a party to the action.
Hiring an experienced professional Process Server in Divorce, Family Court, or Child Support proceedings ensures that Service is performed in accordance with the law, is well documented with GPS date & time stamped photos and descriptive notes, and that signed & notarized Affidavits of Service are scanned and returned via USPS Certified Mail with no hidden fees.
Witness Fee Checks
Corporate requests for Service upon an Individual (such as a "Subpoena Duces Tecum" or "Subpoena Duces Testificandum") may require that a Witness Fee Check be provided to the Respondent with the document(s). Please be sure to let us know if this is the case.
In order to provide the best possible outcome , we ask for as much detail as possible regarding the respondent(s). Such information may include (but is not limited to) work & social schedule, a physical description, photo(s) and social media profiles, vehicle(s) they drive, last known addresses, etc.
When a Process Server encounters a bad address, they will attempt to obtain updated information regarding the respondent's whereabouts. This may include (but is not limited to) interviewing the current residents and neighbors, as well as searching for relatives and assocaites.
Serving Evasive Individuals
In order to demonstrate a good faith effort to locate an individual, it may be necessary to perform a Skip Trace search, check multiple addresses, complete Affidavit(s) of Non-Service, and provide that information to the court in order to proceed.
If someone chooses to willfully evade Service of Process, they may eventually find themselves in the position of having to explain themselves or lose something important as a result of having done so.
Serving Aggressive Individuals
As a Civil Process Serving business with a knack for finding and Serving individuals who've made themselves difficult to locate, one thing we don't go looking for is trouble. We're better prepared to deal with situations that go awry than most, however our approach to each Serve is from a practical perspective before a tactical one.
If there is reason to believe the Respondent may react aggressively or violently, the County Sheriff's Civil Bureau within your local jurisdiction may be better suited to help.
