3 Things to Do to Get the Best Service from Your Process Server
Any professional process server who is successful in their business will be able to successfully serve papers in a timely manner, without any help from you at all. However, you can speed up the time it takes to serve your papers and generally make the process server’s job easier by following just these three tips.
Provide as Much Information as Possible
Provide as much information as possible about where and when the individual to be served can be found. Providing known addresses, friends and relatives, as well as employers, can greatly assist your process server in getting papers served quickly. Giving them the individual’s schedule, as well as where they might be at regular intervals, can also be helpful. For example, you may not know their current address or employer, but know that they are at a particular bowling alley at the same time every week.
Stay In Touch
Your process server should stay in touch with you until your papers are delivered to keep you apprised of their progress. However, it is also important that you stay in contact with your process server. If you learn any new information about where the individual can be found, passing this information along can only help your case move forward faster.
Private process servers often handle dozens of papers per week, and it is possible that they do not follow up with you after they notify you that your papers have been served. Follow up with your process server and make sure that you have documentation backing up proof of service and make sure that this proof has been submitted to the appropriate clerk. Some process servers handle documentation for you, but in some cases you will need to follow up on your own.
