What is Process Serving?
Process serving refers to the legal procedure of delivering legal documents to individuals involved in a court case or legal proceeding. The process server, who is usually a professional process server or a private investigator ensures the documents are properly delivered to the intended recipient. The purpose of process serving is to notify individuals and confirm acknowledgement of a legal matter, and to inform them of their responsibilities within the legal process. Once the legal documents are delivered, SPI provide statements of service, which serves as evidence that the documents were properly served. This statement is then submitted to the court as proof of compliance with the legal requirements.
