Colorado Attorney Services has their focus on providing each client with superior quality services. We value each client relationship by making sure that we meet their needs and expectations. Serving subpoenas and process serving is most of the work we do. The owner, James D. Roland, has ensured that his team of professionals are trained and continually updated about the laws casing what makes a serve legally valid. The team that James Roland must put together to form Colorado Attorney Services is all about providing you with exceptional service. Here is how we do it.
If you had to list your favorite things, I doubt being a part of a lawsuit would be on it. If someone is trying to serve you papers do you really have to accept them? Can’t you just skip town for a little while and things will blow over? What is the worst that could happen if you simply try to avoid being served?
It may be in your best interest to take a moment to consider the facts and consequences before you go down the evasive route.
You may reason that if you do not accept the papers given you, that they will not be able to say that they have been officially served. Is this actually the case? The truth is that the law is aware of how much people dread being served papers. If it was as simple as refusing them, you would not be the first person to think to do it. It is not difficult to see why people think of all sorts of ways to avoid a lawsuit. That is why procedures have been put into place so that papers can be “served” sufficiently enough for the lawsuit to proceed.
Honestly, if you want things to go smoothly and for the lawsuit to be done and over with, the easiest way to do this is to just do as the law requires and accept the papers being served to you. Please do remember that a process server is simply doing their job. They are a third party hired for a specific action and they are in no way a part of the lawsuit. They are only there to serve you papers. That being said, the law does require that several efforts be made to serve papers to an individual. Therefore, process servers are well trained in the art of notifying an evasive person they are being served through several channels.
Even if you are avoiding your process server, it is quite difficult to avoid people all together. When attempts to serve you personally have proved unsuccessful, a savvy process server will simply hand the papers off to a workmate or other competent person to then give to you. Another option is to send the papers to you in the mail via certified postage. These also can be sent either to your home or work. It is clearly extremely difficult to avoid being served forever.
If you have taken a month-long vacation perhaps, where you cannot be reached by any of the previously mentioned avenues, there is a third and final way that you can be considered served.
Lastly, the state will be satisfied with the efforts taken to notify you, if a newspaper ad has been taken out in order to properly inform you. This, of course, may not be ideal for you if you do not like having your dirty laundry aired in public. Once these measures have been followed through on, the court case may proceed whether or not you are there to defend yourself.
If you want to save yourself some time and embarrassment, then give a process server a break, and just accept the papers the first time. If you are looking for a process server yourself, Colorado Attorney Services has you covered!
