A motion to appoint a process server in Louisiana is a legal document filed with the court that requests the appointment of an individual, over the age of majority and residing within the State of Louisiana, to serve legal documents on behalf of a party. This is typically done when service by the sheriff’s office cannot be completed in time for a case. The motion must include reasons verified by affidavit as to why service by the sheriff’s office is not possible.
Process servers are responsible for delivering summonses, subpoenas, and other court documents to individuals involved in legal proceedings. They must ensure that these documents are served properly and by state laws. In Louisiana, process servers may have to be registered with their local parish clerk’s office before they can begin serving papers.
