The attorney is responsible for monitoring the process server to ensure that he or she follows all state rules. The attorney may be required to submit evidence of service to the court. In certain situations, the lawyer may be obligated to file a service return with the court. The opposing party might seek proof of service from you, as an attorney, before engaging a process server. Check with your state’s laws before hiring a process server if you’re an attorney.
A process server is an individual responsible for delivering legal documents, such as summonses and subpoenas, to people involved in a court case. To become a process server, one must be 18 years old or older and cannot have been convicted of a felony.
Process servers must be able to identify the people who will receive legal papers. This might be tough, especially if the individual is trying to avoid being served. To discover the person’s address or position, the process server may need to utilize skip tracing methods.
The process server will need to find the person before delivering the legal documents. The process server will hand-deliver the documents in most cases, but service by publication may be allowed occasionally.
Service by publication is when a notice of the lawsuit is published in a newspaper or other public forum. This type of service may be allowed if the court has approved it and if other methods of service have failed.
It is critical to read Legal papers carefully if you are served with them. The document will contain information about the case, as well as what you must do next. If you have any queries, you should contact an attorney.

It is important to check your state’s regulations regarding process servers before hiring one. If you are ever served with legal papers, make sure you read them thoroughly and contact an attorney if you have any questions.
