Frequently Asked Questions


Q. HOW LONG DOES LEGAL DOCUMENT PROCESS SERVING TAKE?
A. The turn around time varies from city to city. It is our practice as legal professionals to attempt serving the documents every single day at various times. We have a variety of process serving services, and depending on which service is chosen, delivery times will vary. For example, our same day service means that we will continue attempting delivery all day long until we get the job done or conclude that it cannot be done that day (in case the individual is on vacation or no longer at that address). Another service type we offer is rush service, whereby in the ensuing days, we repeatedly attempt delivery to meet the deadline set out by the client. Lastly, we offer a routine service, in which we try to deliver each day/every other day until the job is done. Again, depending on which service you opt for, serving times will vary.

Q. DO I REALLY NEED A PROCESS SERVER?
A. In both Small Claims and Superior Court, it is more likely to your benefit to hire a professional process server to serve your Plaintiff’s Claim or Statement of Claim. Often times, Judges will recognize the process server and tend to have an inclination to believe that the document was served in a proper manner. Should you try and serve the Plaintiff’s Claim yourself, and the Defendant disputes service, you may have a more difficult time proving you served it in the first place.

Defendants will react unpredictably when being served a legal document, as court can be a daunting ordeal to face. Having a professional process server serve your Plaintiff’s Claim for you will eliminate animosity between yourself and the defendant and ensure both sides of the dispute save face.

Further, we are often able to gather additional helpful information that will assist you in your case in the future. For example, we may obtain vehicle license plate numbers or phone numbers that will become valuable information for you.
Q. PROCESS SERVERS HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEFEND THEMSELVES?
A. A few months ago a process who works for Oklahoma Judicial Process Servers and other companies called to share a story of something that had happened on what was supposed to have been an otherwise routine serve. When he first shared his story, everyone was concerned for his safety but not completely shocked at what had happened. What should have proven to be an otherwise routine serve turned into something it did not have to be, and the result turned out poorly for the instigator.
