The Process Service Method

Drop Service

Process servers have a difficult job. The first challenge can be to find the person being served. But then, some people become agitated, may yell obscenities, and even threaten the server with bodily harm.

It’s common for the person to refuse to accept the court papers, either by avoiding the process server flat out refusing to accept the documents being handed to them. Because of this, the courts often recognize legal documents that have been drop-served.

Drop service (or Service by Refusal) occurs when the process server places or ‘drops’ the legal documents near the defendant. In fact, there have been instances when the process server identifies themselves, states why they are there, and then must physically drop the paperwork at the defendant’s feet.

Skip Tracing

Skip tracing is the process of finding someone who cannot be easily tracked down. If the process server has checked the person’s last known address, place of work, and normal hangout spots, it may be thought the person ‘skipped’ town, and the server will need to ‘trace’ them.

In today’s world, it is hard to stay hidden. The internet allows process servers to narrow a search area, but they must know which websites to trust. There are numerous databases that process servers use to find people. These databases search public and non-public records and can cross-reference data found in law enforcement software.

The Stakeout

It’s true that most people don’t want to be served papers. When a process server looks for an individual that is rarely home or not easily found, they may perform a stakeout. This can involve physical surveillance of the person’s home or work. It can be a long and boring job, simply sitting in the car watching for the person, but it is sometimes necessary.

Finally, once the person arrives, the process server must move quickly to intercept the individual, verify their identity, and hand them the paperwork. Or utilize drop service if the individual refuses the papers.

Do I need a process server?

If you’re involved in legal action against another individual or organization, a process server ensures that the other party has been served with the necessary documents. Depending on the laws in your state, hiring a legal process server may be required.

One Source Process provides national process server services for several applications and situations nationwide.

Let Us Handle the Process of Service

Please inquire with our office for any special requests, such as our stake-out service for those avoiding service. Our servers endure a thorough background check before working with us. In addition, we require rigorous training for each server. This ensures that we will find your person and deliver the papers in a professional and timely manner.

At times, the courts may set a timeframe of when the documents must be delivered to the individual (typically 120 days). If the person has not been properly served papers during this time, you may need to refile all documents and restart the entire process. This is why you need a professional process server – and we are the ones to help you.

Our servers will produce a date and time-stamped photograph of when the documents were served or the GPS readout showing exactly when the papers were delivered and how they verified the identity of the person who accepted the papers.
