Service of Process | Personal Delivery Required

Service of Process upon an individual where Personal Delivery is Required, and no other entity may accept on their behalf.

Serving an Individual Personally

While it may be referred to as "Routine Service," Individual Service requires a Process Server to serve ONLY the respondent DIRECTLY (Personal Delivery Required). No third party may accept service on the respondent's behalf, and no other method of Service is permitted.

A Process Server will indicate whether they asked the respondent if they're an active member of the military, as well as provide a physical description of the respondent on the Affidavit of Service.

Serving Aggressive Individuals

As a Civil Process Serving Company with a knack for finding and Serving individuals who are difficult to locate, one thing we don't go looking for is trouble. While we're better prepared than most to deal with situations that "go sideways," if you believe the Respondent may react aggressively or violently, the Sheriff's Civil Bureau within your jurisdiction may be able to help.

Serving Evasive Individuals

Hiding behind an intercom or refusing to open the door won't prohibit Service; Spector v. Berman.

If someone chooses to willfully evade Service, they may eventually find themselves in the position of having to explain themselves or lose something important as a result of having done so. In order to demonstrate your good faith effort to locate the individual, it may be necessary to complete an affidavit of non-service, perform Skip Trace searches. and provide that information to the court.
