Service of process is an important part of the US legal system, and that is why you can’t just hire anyone as your process server. There are occasions when you need to get the help of a local sheriff, but that can take time you don’t have. And most firms can’t afford to have process servers in-house. So here are a few things to learn before you outsource this important task.
- Online reviews – A company is always going to post the most glowing reviews on their own website. However, a quick Google search will reveal if there are a bunch of negative reviews that should warn you off from a particular service. Remember that you can’t please everyone, so one or two bad reviews can be discarded, but dozens mean you should take your business elsewhere.
- Credentials – Make sure your process servers are a member of the National Association of Professional Process Servers (NAPPS) This confirms that there are credible.
- Pricing – Find out how much the service costs and if there are any additional fees that you can expect to see based on the circumstances surrounding the serving. You don’t want to be surprised when you get the bill.
