While most often service of process will go uncontested in court, in the event that the defendant does claim that service of process was served improperly or not at all it is crucial to have documentation that proves service of process was done correctly. The defendant may claim that they were not at the location where the process was served or that the documents were not served to them. An experienced and knowledgeable process server will keep meticulous records to prevent delays in your court proceedings or even a dismissal.
Choosing a knowledgeable and experienced process server to deliver your documents is essential. Not all process server companies are created equal and not all process servers have the same level of skill or the same knowledge of the rules and laws governing the service of process. It should never be taken for granted that because a person has labeled themselves a process server they will be competent and capable of completing service properly. Choosing an inexperienced or dishonest process server can be detrimental to your case.
When looking into a process server company it is important to seek companies that do not make use of independent contractors. The experience and skill of independent contractors can vary wildly. Companies have little control over their training or lack thereof. This could lead to improper delivery of documents, failed delivery, or a lack of completed paperwork—once again impacting the length of court proceedings.
Finally, when choosing a process server company one of the most valuable things to look at is experience. A process server with little experience is more likely to make costly mistakes.
