A person, business, or legal officer engaged in serving papers to a person who has been involved in a court proceeding is known as a process serving company. In most jurisdictions, a process serving company performs a number of functions including legal process retrieval, process service, filing legal papers, and court service to others. The legal process serving company will generally be the one responsible for the preparation and presentation of the legal papers, the documentation and the information contained in the papers to the person to whom the papers have been assigned.
It is often the case that people want the documents they have submitted to the person they are serving documents on to be received by the person concerned within the shortest time possible. This is why a service provider would often provide a service like this. In many instances, these service providers will provide a company to assist in the preparation and presentation of the documents for the person being served with. However, it is sometimes necessary to seek out such assistance for a more complex case.
There are two types of processes that a process serving company can perform. The first involves preparing a request for a person to submit to the judge who is handling the case in question. In many cases, this request is sent via email, fax or telephone. If this request is not received on time, it is likely that the documents the person submitting the request form will not be processed by the process serving company, because the service is not experienced in these matters.
The second type of process, a service provider can perform involves the processing of the papers that are being served. In many cases, this involves making sure that the papers have been filed correctly by an experienced service. This service may also ensure that any paper that has been filed has not been misprinted or otherwise altered in any way. This means that these documents should be certified in all legal documents that are served on the person to whom they are to be served. These documents are then presented to the court, either on their own or as part of a package of other papers that the person may have been assigned.
A service provider can be of help in a number of other ways when it comes to preparing the papers being served. For instance, if a person wants to find out whether there are any criminal warrants that are outstanding against them, they should ask their service provider to obtain this information on the person to whom the papers are to be served. In most cases, this information will include the full names of the people to whom the warrants were issued and where the warrants are located.
In many jurisdictions, when a process serving company is hired for the purpose of serving papers, the service provider must be a registered member of the state bar association. This allows the service provider to be recognized as having sufficient experience in the areas of process serving and in the preparation and filing of legal papers.
