FAQS

4. The court needs a very specific proof filled out. How do I get that to the process server?

In order for the Server fill out your specific proof, please upload it with the documents to be served and note that a specific proof needs to be filled out in the "Additional Information" field when placing your order. 

5. I need someone served on a military base or in a prison/jail. Do you do that?

This depends on the base or jail/prison. Some allow process servers in, others do not. Some have specific requirements such as making an appointment with a base escort. Please check with the military base/jail directly to confirm.

6. I need to serve someone, but don’t know their address. Can you find them for me?

Locating an individual, by law, requires “permissible purpose”. Therefore, we can only legally skip-trace for law firms or those who have retained a licensed attorney. You can place a skip trace order

1.  I am serving two defendants at the same address. Do you provide price breaks on the 2nd one?

We charge per defendant, per address, and per case. So, each party will be priced the same. If the orders are ordered together, it is eligible for a discount. 

2. Can I talk to the process server? I need to give them specific instructions about this service.

Please add specific instructions in the “Additional Information” field when placing your order. You can also add this information later on the order detail page. Specific instructions must be submitted at the time of the order.

3. I need server names for my Motion and Order. How do I get those?

You must add this request in the “Additional Instruction” field when placing your order on our website. When we process your order, we will provide you with the name of the server assigned to your case.
