Law firms deal with hundreds of cases every year, many of which include summoning defendants to courts and the issue of a legal notification pertaining that summons by the court. This notification must, at all costs reach the defendant within a certain period of time, failing which the prosecutor loses the right to continue the case against the defendant and the plaintiff is denied the opportunity of being remedied for losses incurred.
The law requires that a defendant must be properly notified of the summons. This is done by service of process, a term pertaining to the conveyance of such legal notification. This notification is called service of process is carried out by a process server, a registered individual who has been approved of being a reliable means of delivering the service of process. Such a person must be aware of all the legalities associated with his position. Failure to follow the proper procedures for serving process can lead to termination of the server’s registration and a dismissal of the plaintiff’s case in court. Thus the selection of the right process server becomes critical when dealing with such proceedings.
Documents that fall under service of process include writs, subpoenas and summons orders issued by the proper legal authority. These documents need to reach the intended destination and be delivered directly to the defendant, all the while keeping in mind the time limit within which such delivery is legal. All attempts to deliver the documents after the time limit has ended will not be entertained by the court of law and will be classified as illegal and rejected. There are many means of delivering service of process such as substituted service and published service. However, hand delivery is the most effective means and commonly employed means of service delivery.
The need for a professional for the procedure of service of process is keenly felt when dealing with sensitive issues where the defendant might not welcome the notification and may even refuse to accept the delivery of the documents. A misstep at such a crucial time can very well ruin the plaintiff’s case. The delivery of service of process becomes void if the server employs any means to secure delivery that are illegal in accordance with the law. Such means include wrongly informing the defendant of the notification in order to trick him into appearing in court at a certain date. Also, if it is proved that the process server did not attempt to deliver the documents at all and, instead, disposed them illegally, the trial becomes invalid and the case is rejected in court.
