Process Serving Info

Our staff members and Philadelphia process servers are often asked these questions about service of process:

What is service of process?

Process service refers to the serving of documents in a legal case. This ensures that everyone involved in a legal case is alerted of the matter and can take action if needed. For example, if someone is sued, he or she must be served with legal papers to be able to answer the charges in the suit against them. Through process service and other means, U.S. law ensures that everyone has a fair chance to appear before court.

How do process servers carry out service of process?

Process service is more complex than many people realize. When a company like Dennis Richman Services for the Professional, Inc. is contacted by a client who wants documents delivered, our Philadelphia process servers need to get the documents and the name and address of the individual. The process servers must then try to locate the individual to serve the papers. Then, process servers must verify the identity of the recipient and serve them while observing all relevant local laws. Finally, Dennis Richman Services for the Professional, Inc. provides status updates and a written affidavit of service to clients so they know that their documents have been served. In cases where a recipient tries to evade a process server, the server may need to do some investigative work in order to find and serve the individual.

How long does service of process take?

Dennis Richman Services for the Professional, Inc. offers rush service as well as regular service. Rush service means that your documents are prioritized and sent out at once. However, in these cases people can still try to avoid getting served and our Philadelphia process servers will keep making attempts to ensure your documents get served. Dennis Richman Services for the Professional, Inc. works days, nights, and even weekends to ensure that your documents are served quickly.
