Process Serving

When notifying a party of legal action, it is important to be sure that the documentation has actually been received. A Process server is a trusted third party that will guarantee that documents have been delivered directly into the hands of the named recipient(s) and informed them of the contents. Process servers will then provide a statement, certificate or affidavit that details when, where and how the document was served, to prove that the party has been notified.

Process Servers

We offer a fixed-fee process serving package of up to 3 visits. We guarantee that the documents will be served correctly and on time, every time. We will provide you with a statement of service within 48 hours of serving the documents to confirm the time and date of the delivery. We accept work funded by the Legal Aid Authority as well as private cases.

Many recipients are aware that they will be getting served at some point and can make it difficult for process servers to locate and identify them. Fortunately, we are private investigators. We are discreet, experienced, and have a variety of techniques and equipment we can use to locate the subject, confirm their identity and evidence their receipt.

During the initial phone call our client made it apparent that the respondent had been evasive for quite some time. Read on about the rouge trader and how we helped our client.
