  • What is Service of Process? +

    The Florida 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 an important aspect of the Due Process of Law.

    People are notified of actions against them or court procedures involving them through the delivery of legal documents such as summons, complaints, subpoenas, order to show cause, and writs.

    One type of service is called “substituted service”. This legal process of service is when the documents are left with an adult resident of the named party at the target’s home, or with a management level employee at their place of business. There are also circumstances when posting in a prominent place (followed up by a certified mail copy) is an accepted method of service.

  • Who can serve papers? +

    When service of process was first instituted, it 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 Florida, 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.

    As per Florida Statue, all process servers at Treasure Coast Process Servers are licensed, registered with the county and have posted a surety bond.

  • What Does a Legal Process Server Do? +

    Our process servers deliver (serves) legal documents to the defendant or individual listed on the legal document being served. Once the documents are delivered, an Affidavit of Service, also called a Proof of Service, is notarized and given to the party who requested the service.
