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.

Serving One Of Two Identical Brothers

As a Process Server a photograph of your recipient is always helpful however not in the case of two near identical brothers. We were tasked with serving a recipient a Divorce Petition, the client and the dizygotic brother had been separated for some time, due to building a new life abroad the client wanted to deal with her past once and for all and understandably contacted Reveal Private Investigations to support with delivering the petitions of her husband.

The Man Who Accused Our Process Server Of Lying

In many of our process serves we wear a covert body-worn camera and obtain video evidence of the serve, although it is very rare anybody ever disputes that they were served, it does happen from time to time. A client came to us with the need for service of documents relating to a court appearance, the case was to do with overdue debts and the client’s solicitor had informed them to contact us. 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.

Lying about injuries for financial gain creates stigma and undue stress for those who rely on compensation and injury payments.

Becoming a victim of fraud can be stressful and financially devastating so investigating it professionally and effectively is vital.

Process serving is a process conducted by professionals to ensure important documents are received by the designated recipient and to prevent them from being able to deny knowledge of the contents. Process is usually served ‘personally’ which involves speaking with the recipient directly and either handing them the paperwork or informing them of the contents and leaving them in a safe place.

FAQ

Our fixed-fee process serving packages include up to three visits so we can make a further two visits without incurring additional fee’s.

Some types of document (For example: Statutory Demand at a companies Registered Office) can be served by affixing the documents to a safe and visible place, others can be served through substituted-service (Posting them through a letterbox) so although it is preferred, it is not always mandatory to physically hand them to the recipient.

The general rule of thumb is that if we are unable to speak with the recipient we will make enquiries to confirm they live there and send a letter of appointment arranging a time which we will return to the property to personally serve the respondent.
