Not All Process Servers Are Created Equal
Even though the Constitution grants due process to all U.S. Citizens through the fifth and sixth amendments, it does not guarantee that all process servers provide service equally. And in terms of the the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s licensing requirements for process servers, process severs are only required to be over 18. So basically anyone can serve legal documents in Pennsylvania, making it doubly important for businesses to have trust in their process server.
Websites Claim Their Process Servers Are “Local”
Not only should the process server you choose for your process serving needs be trustworthy, they should also be local. Yet with less people using the Yellow Pages and more people turning to Google, outside operators have set up a vast network of websites that appear under local search terms like, “process server Montgomery County PA” or “process servers Montgomery County PA,” and so on. Just because they have a website that appears to be “local” on Google’s search results, by no means does said process server actually have a physical presence in Montgomery County. Why does this pose a problem? Well process servers are required to physically deliver legal documents to intended recipients. On top of that, state law requires legal documents be delivered within a specified period of time. So by not dealing with a local process server in Montgomery County, PA, you are risking your documents not being delivered, let alone delivered in a timely manner enumerated by state law.
