A Case Cannot Proceed Before Service

The law requires that the other party in your case be served a copy of the Complaint that you filed. This service informs the person that there is a lawsuit against them.

However, people sometimes evade the process. If the person you have filed a case against is running away from getting served this notice, you definitely need a professional Berkeley process server that knows the ins and outs of service of process to make the right decisions and knows what a good and enforceable service looks like. Someone who can guide you through the next step, whether that be stakeout time, service by special court order or publication.

Process servers deliver Complaints to the Defendants, and can also retrieve documents from the Berkeley court on your behalf. They can help you serve the notice quickly so that the case proceedings can begin. If the person you want to sue is running away, the process servers may be able to track them down for you and ascertain that they get the notice.

It’s an Important Part of Due Process

Due process ensures that the state respects all the legal rights owed to a person. Through due process, a power balance is maintained between the individual and the state.

Process service is a vital component of due process. An individual or state cannot harm a person without following the due process. This also implies that the individual needs to be aware of the violation or a lawsuit filed against them. Process servers help you inform the other party about the case, even when they are trying to evade it.

Timely delivery of the serving notice means that both the parties can appear in the court and resolve the dispute in appropriate time and in accordance with the law.


Process Service Requires In-depth Knowledge of the Legal System

Service of process lets a party give an appropriate notice to another party about the initiation of legal action. This notice is delivered through a “service of process.” The process is a set of court documents given to the person to be served.

Personal service of process has been used in the United States to initiate litigation for about 100 years now. This happens because personal service of process ensures that the defendant has received a notice of a legal action against them. States can have process serving laws regarding the forms to be used, time deadlines for the service, the manner in which the process is served, etc.

Comprehensive understanding of the legal system is thus required to minimise the fallacies and accelerate the legal process.

Pile of books on top of table

Your daily life is action-packed and demanding, leaving you with barely any time to file court documents, research the laws involved or find someone to serve the process. If you are not sure about the legalities, you will end up spending a lot of time trying to understand the jargon, conditions, and how the legal system works.

This will not only delay your case, but also lead to frustration and ill health. Delaying a case excessively can also lead to court sanctions or even having it thrown out. How will you then get a fair resolution of your complaint?
