What is a Process Server

Those in the legal field likely know what a process server does, but others may have misconceptions about the profession. The definition of a process server is "a person authorized by law to deliver papers, typically the complaint, to the defendant." The principal job of a process server is to deliver, or "serve", legal documents. Process servers are needed in an assortment of tasks, such as retrieving documents, serving legal documents, and filing court papers. After serving the documents, verification needs to be delivered to the court in the form of a proof of service. Process servers are legally required to serve papers in the correct manner laid out by the court.

Why is Service of Process Significant

Service of process is necessary for many reasons, but the primary reason is to make sure that the due process of law is upheld. Additionally, process servers are used to ensure that legal papers are served in a highly effective and appropriate fashion. If your papers are not served properly, the entire case may be thrown out. This makes it even more essential that you hire a competent process server.

Why Choose a Process Server Over a Sheriff or Constable

When having legal papers served, this can be a dilemma. A poll was taken from 100 paralegals, legal assistants, and legal administrators who have papers served regularly. They were asked several questions regarding speed of service, customer service, knowledge of laws, success rate, and average cost of service. Below is a chart of those results.

Category Process Server Constable
Preferred Provider 78% 19%
Speed of Service 90% 10%
Customer Service 4.28/5 Stars 2.55/5 Stars
Knowledge of Laws 58% 13%
Success Rate 92% 74%
Average Cost $53.99 $39.58

As you can see from the chart above, the process server is preferred in 5 out of the 6 categories. The difference in the average cost is less than $15 and that average drops significantly in bulk serves.
