What You Should Know Before Hiring a Process Server

When you have a legal matter to attend to, one of the obstacles that you face is getting legal papers served so that the case can move forward. Although you are likely anxious to get this case moving through the courts to a conclusion, you want to be careful about who you choose to serve your legal papers. Here are some things to keep in mind about the process server before hiring them.

Licensed and Registered

A private process server in Florida must be licensed and registered with the courts. They must remain eligible to be a process server once registered, such as not having any legal cases against them. It is important that you choose a process server that is registered with the courts. If anyone else delivers your legal documents it could be invalid service, and your case could get dismissed or delayed.

Experienced 

The private process server you choose should be experienced and knowledgeable about the laws and regulations of service of process. You don’t want to choose a process server who doesn’t have experience handling your type of case and situation. Always ask process service companies who will actually be serving your papers, and how much experience they have.

Skip Tracing

If you know that the individual named in your case will be difficult to serve, you need to make sure that your private process server knows how to track people down. They should be able to do skip tracing in house or through a contracted private investigator. The best private process servers can find anyone eventually.
