How to Choose the Best Process Server

Originally posted on 07/13/2015

Imagine that you want to take action against someone else in court, but you can't notify them because you can't find them. But since the law says that you must notify them, what can you do?

Process Servers - Solution to a Difficult to Contact Person

In cases like these, it’s best to hire a process server to complete the work for you. A process server will find the person for you and deliver all the necessary court documents. They can deliver court documents, such as subpoenas, summons, and complaints.

Because process servers have a crucial job, finding the right one is important. You will want to consider a variety of factors so that you can find a server that you trust. Keep reading to learn more about what you should look for in a process server.

1. Timing of Your Process Servers Work

Process servers must follow the laws and rules to ensure that everyone follows the civil procedure. Hiring professional and trained process servers can allow a law firm to operate more smoothly. The first thing you would want to consider is if the server can provide timely and quality service. If the server cannot serve on time, then you will not be able to even continue on with the case.

2. Record-Keeping and Technology Application

All the good work doesn't matter if someone doesn't keep track of it and hasn't kept up with the pace of technology. You will want to check if they are up to date on their technology, which includes servers having access to cell phones, GPS navigation, internet, fax, email, online tracking of documents, and national databases for skip tracing. They must also provide proof of service and have records of all their documents that are easily accessible.

3. Use a Service with the Capacity to Meet Your Needs

Do they have enough qualified people? 

Since timing is crucial in this field, finding a company that has multiple servers is a much better option because if you hire an independent server, they might not be able to serve immediately. Companies that have multiple servers can be more effective and often serve within the very same day. However, you will want to ensure that each of their servers are properly trained and certified. If they do not have experience with the court’s procedures, skip tracing, and locating defendants, they will slow down the process and create additional problems.
