Frequently Asked Questions.

United States legal procedure requires that each party in a case should be notified if actions are taken against them in a court of law. Process serving is the action of delivering those notifications and is an important aspect of the Due Process of Law.

Originally, process service was performed by sheriffs or deputies, and agents of the court. This became a burden on law enforcement, so the legislation was changed. Now, in many states, any US citizen that is not a party to the case, over the age of 18, and residing in the state where the matter is to be tried can serve papers. 

We have flat rate pricing on all of our services! That means you pay NO HIDDEN FEES. We are honest about our pricing up front, what the fees include, and always contact you beforehand in the event any extra expenses occur.

Unlike other companies, we are very easy to contact. We answer our phones, return messages quickly and answer emails in a reasonable time frame. Call our office at (866) 754-0520 or email us at and we’ll be happy to answer your questions and guide you through the process — or use one of the other convenient options of your choice by clicking our logo in the bottom right hand corner of this website.

If your paperwork cannot be served prior to your court date, you will unfortunately need to get the court date reset and submit a new request to our office.
