Frequently Asked Questions

Initial Pre-Certification Training

  • What does a process server do?

    Process servers are needed in an assortment of tasks such as filing court papers, serving legal documents, and document retrieval. Their principal job is to deliver or “serve” legal documents to a defendant or person involved in a court case. After serving any legal documents, process servers have to deliver actual evidence that the legal papers were served. The verification that is offered is referred to as a return of service or affidavit of service, which must be notarized and processed with the court.​
