Process ServiceIn Need of a Process Server for the Delivery of Official Documents?
The Importance of a Trusted Tampa Process Server
United States legal procedure requires that parties facing legal action in a court of law or administrative court be properly notified of actions taken against them. Notification of such actions are presented through a procedure known as service of process. Service of process involves the delivery of legal documents such as summons, complaints, subpoenas, order to show cause, or writs. A Tampa process server delivers, or serves, the necessary legal documents to the party listed on the documents being served. The process server must deliver the documents according to local and state laws. This may mean the process server in Tampa hand delivers the documents to the individual, delivers the documents to a registered agent of a corporation or entity, or sub-serves to another member of the household or business. After the documents are successfully delivered, an Affidavit of Service, sometimes referred to as a Proof of Service, is notarized and delivered to the party that requested the service. This Affidavit of Service shows proof that the papers were actually delivered.
Do I Need a Tampa Process Server?
Do you have official court documents that must be delivered to parties involved in your case? If so, the answer to this question is, yes. Regardless of the circumstance, a party involved in a legal action in a court of law or administrative court is not allowed to serve another party involved in the same case. Doing so would violate Civil Process statutes and could potentially cost you the case. Process serving laws and rules of civil procedure may vary by state. In the State of Florida, process servers are required to be either (a) appointed by a sheriff in a qualified county or (b) certified by a chief judge of a judicial circuit.
