Traits of a Good Process Server

When you are looking for someone to serve process in your case, you want to make sure that the person you hire is going to get the job done right. Hiring a private process server is not a decision to be made lightly. Instead of just picking someone random off the list provided by the courts of available servers, ask some questions and do some investigation to make sure your process server has these traits.

Knowledge of the Law

The process server you hire in Orlando should be familiar with federal, state, and county laws regarding service of process. Different types of papers have different rules regarding how they can be delivered and with whom they can be left with. You don’t want your case to be delayed because the process server did not obey the law and left the papers with the wrong person.


You definitely want to hire a process server who is going to be persistent in trying to get the papers served. Often it takes multiple attempts and some investigative work to get papers served appropriately. Make sure the process server you hire has the persistence to track down the individual to be served and not give up.

Good Reputation

A process server is only as good as their success rate. Your process server should have a very high rate of successfully delivering papers. While there are no guarantees in serving process, a higher success rate will show that the process server knows best how to track down individuals and get them served whenever possible.

Use of Technology

A good process server knows how to use technology to find people who need to be served. There are a lot of tools that could be in their toolbox such as GPS, skip-trace programs, and online databases. The more tools they use in their business, the more likely they will be able to serve papers successfully.
