|About||Steady Serving-"Committed to Making the Service of Process Fast, Reliable, and Easy"|
Some of you may be asking,..."What is process serving? And what is a process server?" The answer, while quite simple, is also very complex in its own rights. Here is a brief description of what serve of process is, and what process server are and do.
-Process serving is delivering legal documents such as summonses, complaints, subpoenas, writs, and other court documents to the individual or business to which is is directed. For example, if you are a landlord, and your tenant(s) are behind on rent, and you are having a difficult time getting the money owed to you, you can then take the person/people to court, by summoning them. In order for the person to know they are summoned to court for a hearing, usually a sheriff will go to the place of residence to the people/person who is being summoned to court, and serve them a summons, stating the court date, the time, why they are being brought to court, and by whom
- Being a process server means that you are taking the place of the sheriff and serving the person for that landlord. It is a cheaper, more reliable way to guarantee that the paperwork will get to the individual or individuals to which it is directed to. Sheriffs are usually busy with many other things, a process server dedicates their time and business strictly to making sure those documents get to where they should be at the appropriate time. (Papers must be served at least 8 days before the court date.)
Another popular question is, "Well, who can be a process server?"
-Anyone can be a process server if he or she chooses. However, the field does require a strong willed, ambitious, and confident person, which are all traits that can be learned and improved over time as your career develops and grows. Process serving is a safe and reliable way to earn income, even in tough situations. If you are completing the service correctly, then there usually will not be a problem. However, if you antagonize a person, then you run the risk of an altercation developing.
