Process Servers: Who You Choose Matters
Qualified process servers are aware that the U.S. Constitution grants all citizens the right to due process. In Mullane v. Central Hanover Bank & Trust Co., the Supreme Court echoed the importance of service of process:
“An elementary and fundamental requirement of due process in any proceeding which is to be accorded finality is notice reasonably calculated, under all the circumstances, to apprise interested parties of the pendency of the action and afford them an opportunity to present their objections.”
The Constitution cannot, however, guarantee that all process servers are created equal or that they all provide the same level of reliability, efficiency and professionalism. In fact, the states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware do not mandate that process servers meet any special licensing requirements. Basically, anyone over the age of 18 can serve legal documents in those states.
What Does This Mean?
It means that when you hire process servers in PA, NJ or DE, you don’t really know whether they’re competent. Clearly, it’s important for businesses to have trust in their process servers. Therefore, select a firm that abides by the rules outlined in the laws of the state(s) in which they operate. How do you choose?
Not only should the process server you choose be trustworthy, they should also be local. When you perform a local search, search engines can display a number of process servers that aren’t actually local. In this Age of the Internet, outside operators (based out of just about anywhere) can rank for local search terms. But beware – dealing with non-local process servers could prove to be a major liability for your business. Why? Because process servers must deliver legal documents in person and have the recipient sign in person. What’s more, they must do this within a time-frame specified by state law. Process servers who are not local to you might not deliver your documents on time (or at all).
