What Does a Fort Lauderdale Process Server do?

process server in Florida is a neutral third party in a legal dispute who serves important legal documents to one or more defendants.

These individuals are important because legal documents can’t just be dropped off somewhere. They can’t be sent through the regular mail (first class, priority, etc), and you can’t place them on a doorstep or desk and consider the defendant “served.”

Rather, there are strict laws governing the process of serving legal documents. For example, process servers in Florida have to abide by rules such as these:

  • No serving papers on Sundays
  • Generally, the first attempt must be at the defendant’s personal residence
  • Public settings are acceptable locations for process serving
  • Sometimes, a process server can leave the legal papers with another resident of the home, as long as they are 15 years of age or older
  • When a residential address is unknown, a process server may inform the defendant’s employer of the intention to serve at that address; the employer faces a $1,000 for non-compliance

There are additional rules governing process servers, and we make sure that our representatives are fully compliant with every Florida statute and rule related to the service of process.

Process servers must:

  • Complete rigorous training
  • Have a positive identification of the defendant(s) being served
  • Successfully locate the defendant(s)
  • Follow all Florida service of process laws
  • Transfer legal documents to the defendant(s) in accordance with those laws
  • Provide timely resolution of service orders
  • Make a legal recording of their delivery (which may be a video recording or a written statement/form)
  • Maintain professionalism
  • Pay attention to details in order to avoid jeopardizing the court case because of service of process mistakes or omissions

This is an important part of a legal dispute. Being served with papers is the act that officially informs a person that they are being named as a defendant in legal proceedings.

Professions That Hire Process Servers in Fort Lauderdale

Without a doubt, process servers are most commonly hired by lawyers. That said, lawyers are not the only professionals who hire process servers! In fact, there are many kinds of professions that work with process servers.

  • Collection agencies often rely heavily on process servers to formally notify debtors of legal actions being taken to recover unpaid debts. The servers legally deliver important documents like demand letters, lawsuits, summonses, wage garnishments, and more. This formal notification is a critical part of the debt collection process.
  • Insurance companies frequently use process servers to legally provide notice to different parties regarding claims disputes, subrogation rights, policy terminations, and other insurance-related legal matters. The servers formally deliver the necessary documents on behalf of the insurance companies.
  • Corporations use process servers to handle legal notification and service of process for business disputes, intellectual property cases, contract enforcement actions, and various other corporate legal issues. The servers formally deliver summonses, subpoenas, lawsuits, and other legal documents to the necessary parties.
  • Private investigators often work together with process servers to legally issue subpoenas for obtaining information, records, testimony, and more for investigative purposes. The process servers formally deliver the subpoenas to compel cooperation with investigations. Some PIs also serve as process servers themselves.
  • Government agencies utilize process servers to formally serve court orders, tax liens, eviction notices, and other legal actions necessary for agency operations. The servers handle formal notification and documentation for these government legal matters.
  • Property managers may use process servers to formally notify tenants about issues like overdue rent, lease violations, evictions, and related disputes. The servers legally deliver the required notices for these property management matters.
  • Private citizens can engage process servers without a lawyer to handle notification for small claims suits, family court documents, probate issues, and more. The servers formally deliver the legal documents in these cases.

Serve Defendants right the first time.

Being a leader in the civil process service industry means providing our clients with unparalleled integrity, excellence, and reliability.
