What Is a Process Server?
A process server is an individual who delivers legal documents to parties involved in litigation, as
required by law. Specific rules and procedures regulate the delivery of said court documents. This
legal activity is also known as "service of process" or "process service". Process servers (also
known as "servers", "peace officers" , "deputy sheriffs" , "bailiffs" or "constables") are authorized to
deliver process to defendants , witnesses or plaintiffs. The term "process" means any legal
document that needs to be "served" (delivered), and it includes subpoenas, writs, orders to show
cause, petitions, complaints, summonses, citations, judgments, court orders, notices to appear,
notice to tenants, etc.
Generally one of the main differences between a process server and a "delivery person" or courier is
that process service usually involves delivery of legal documents and generally it is unwelcome by
the recipients of process. Process servers deliver subpoenas, summonses, complaints, citations,
petitions, court orders, notices, etc. Indeed, very few persons in United States look forward to
getting served with a summons and complaint. Furthermore, process servers' actions and
procedures are generally regulated and established by laws and courts.
Although serving papers can be done by most persons over the age of 18 who are not parties
involved in the legal matter, in many states and cities process servers must be licensed or
registered. Certain cities also have specialized officers who function as process servers for specific
cases. For example, in New York City, sheriffs, NYPD officers and marshals may effect process
serving functions under certain circumstances. If you need an order of protection (restraining order)
served you have the right to go to your local stationhouse and ask any NYPD police officer to serve it.
NYC marshals will serve the final eviction papers on a tenant who has failed to pay rent.
Process servers are required to maintain records of their activities and to state under oath that they
have effected service (affidavit of service or service return).
