How To Serve A Subpoena

Many times when handling legal matters, the people that need to testify or give physical evidence are difficult to locate or worse, are uncooperative.  A registered process server can make certain that a subpoena is served quickly and legally so you can move forward with your case.

What is a subpoena?

A subpoena is a legal document that orders an individual to show up for an examination or legal proceeding at a specific time and date. A subpoena could be a summons for an individual to provide testimony, testify during the early stages of an examination, or simply to provide physical proof pertinent to the case.

Why do you have to have a subpoena served?

As part of the legal process, you must inform the individual in question that their presence is required in court.  By law, you and your family members are restricted from serving or delivering the documents.  Typically, hiring a process server is your fastest and safest option for delivering your subpoena.

How A Process Server Can Help

Many legal processes require a subpoena to be served.

If you have time constraints, or you’re unable to find the individual being served, a registered process server will complete the job on your behalf.
