Process serving is a process by which a party to a lawsuit will give sufficient and appropriate notice of their intended legal action to a third party, a court, or an administrative body, so that they may exercise a jurisdiction. There are many examples where this can become necessary and this article will look at three of them. A Denver process server can be found online that specialises in this kind of service, which extends to, in the surrounding area, helping law firms, companies, and individuals, to issue the relevant documents in this process in a timely and correct manner.
Process servers will, on behalf of courts, serve court documents in the case of summons. This will be to ensure that a person turns up at court as legally required. It is important that the documents make it to the correct person and in good time before the court case. It can be necessary for the person to be traced first, and process servers are excellent at finding people. They have access to records that individuals do not have. Their research skills in this area are second to none. They are experienced in manhunts. Unless a person is found, it is impossible to have them attend court, or to inform them that they need to. The idea of having a professional team on board to deliver the legal papers to wherever that person is hiding, is an invaluable service that sees justice prevail. It can be difficult locating people who do not want to be found easily for legal firms who are not equipped with the resources or experience in doing so.
Divorces are invariably not straight forward or amicable, and for that reason it can be a good idea to have a process server issue the legal documents on an individual’s behalf. This is necessary where there is a restraining order, which the process server can also have taken care of. Even where there is no restraining order in place, there can still be bad feeling to avoid and not want to exacerbate. In any event, the divorce papers still need to be delivered for the court hearing to take place and the divorce to be finalised.
If you are in this situation, there is an interesting article that you might like to read that helps prepare for divorce.
In the case of eviction, no tenant is going to be happy or willing to leave their property. In most cases the tenant has not paid up because finances are tight, suggesting that they have few alternatives to move on to and will be doing their best to stay put. It is a situation that a landlord would prefer not to become involved in, and so will leave it to the legal system to sort out, not to continue to have to take the financial burden of not receiving rent from that tenant. A firm of process servers can issue on behalf of clients the documents necessary to see that the legal action is following through and the tenant is duly evicted. Should the tenant refuse to accept the court papers from even the process server, then they can leave the documents at their feet and that would count as a successful “service of process”. The process server has this power on behalf of the courts.
In summary, there are many services that process servers can offer their clients. The above represent some of the most common reasons for needing the services of one. Others might be citations, complaints, restraining orders (as mentioned already), small claims, and subpoenas. There are more in addition, and although legal teams can prepare documents, there is nobody better to deliver them than an experienced process server, who will know the legal process inside out.
