Family law and divorce matters need to be handled with sensitivity. These situations can be emotionally charged and require special consideration. This is especially true when there are children involved. Hiring a process server that can handle these situations efficiently and with tact is extremely important, especially when the client’s ability to move on in life is dependent on timely delivery of their divorce documents.
Divorce is most often an incredibly difficult time for all parties. In situations where children are involved, the parents will generally not want those children present for the delivery of legal documents. This can be an especially stressful time for children. As process servers, we want to make this event as easy on the children in a household as we can while upholding our responsibility to preserve due process rights.
Evasion of service is incredibly common when dealing with divorce paperwork. The level of negative feelings between the two parties may have been building for a long time and it is not uncommon for one party to want to make things difficult for the other.
And sometimes the evasion has more to do with one party not feeling as though they want to go through with the divorce. They may believe that by evading service and prolonging the legal proceedings they will have more time to work on reconciliation.
Whatever the cause, evasion of service during divorce proceedings will inevitably produce more stress for the parties involved. A skilled process server will help to expedite service in these situations and be more likely to complete service on the first attempt.
Unfortunately there are cases where one spouse is seeking a divorce in a domestic abuse situation. Timing is so very important in these situations for the safety of the spouse seeking divorce. Serving documents early or while the abused spouse is present can be detrimental. It is vital to hire a process server that will follow whatever plan is in place to ensure the safety of that spouse.
