Hiring the right process server can make all the difference. A competent process server will help to ensure that your court case runs like clockwork and unnecessary delays are eliminated.
Process servers are integral in ensuring that legal paperwork is served to the correct individual. The service provided by a process server can vary greatly based on their experience and training. While it may seem simple, an inexperienced process server is more likely to serve the wrong person or be unable to provide proof that an individual was served. An entire case can be compromised when the defendant can claim incomplete or incorrect service of process.
Here are some considerations when hiring a process server.
How long has their business been in operation? Nothing beats experience. An experienced process server will have a wealth of knowledge. This knowledge will help them to track down difficult to find or evasive defendants and ensure that no paperwork is left undone or done incorrectly.

How much will the service cost? Your process server should be up front about all costs. Costs can vary greatly based on the type of service requested, fees incurred while carrying out that service, and the difficulty of completing that service.
What are their certifications? Your process server should be qualified to execute service in the region where the papers are to be served and filed. A process server with proper licensing will prevent time consuming hold ups with your court case.
How will you be able to track the progress of the service? Your process server should keep in touch with you about the progress and completion of your service. This can be accomplished in a variety of ways, such as email, text, or phone call.
Asking the right questions when hiring a process server will ensure that you are in good hands and prevent any additional stress in an already stressful legal situation.
