One copy for each person to be served and one copy to keep on file. If you would like a copy mailed back to you with the Return of Service, please provide an extra copy.
Can papers be served immediately?
We attempt to serve papers as efficiently as possible, but cannot guarantee immediate service. Please allow sufficient time to locate the individual and serve the papers.
Can you serve the papers at a specific time/date?
We will attempt to accommodate specific date/time requests, however, we cannot guarantee that our process server or deputy will be available to meet that request.
Do the papers need to be served to the person named on the papers or can you give them to whoever answers the door?
Some papers require "personal" service and must be served on the person named. Other papers can be served to someone else at the residence (at least 14 years of age) after 3 attempts have been made.
How will I know when the papers are served?
You will receive a Return of Service in the mail (or via email per your request) once the papers are served.
