Process Serving Info
The Myers Attorney’s Services staff frequently gets asked these questions:
Why is process service important?Process service ensures that everyone in a legal action is informed of the action and has a chance to reply. Without this system of verification, some people might never get their day in court and it would be much harder to prove service in cases where someone in a case claims he or she did not receive their court documents. Process service reduces these types of problems.
Can't I just mail legal documents through a courier?While courier services are very convenient, they do not replace process service. While you can get a confirmation of delivery with a courier, you cannot confirm who actually received the documents. Process servers offer an affidavit of service, which can prove in court that a target was served in accordance with the law.
What happens if someone wants to elude process servers?Unfortunately, this does happen. The process servers hired by Myers Attorney’s Services have extensive experience as well as training just for this type of situation. Our process servers will communicate with you about attempts at service and will use all legal resources to get your documents served. In some cases, the documents can be served in a public place that a target frequents, for example.
