Are There Different Types of Subpoenas?

Are There Different Types of Subpoenas?

One of our most frequently used services at CAS is process serving, and most of the documents that we deliver are subpoenas. Not everyone understands subpoenas and they may not realize that there are different types of subpoenas either. Which is why we want to clear some things up for you here today regarding the nature of subpoenas and the specific types.

Put simply, a subpoena is a legal document that requires an individual to provide evidence or testify in a court proceeding or legal matter. There are several types of subpoenas that may be issued depending on the circumstances of the case.

Subpoena Ad Testificandum

This type of subpoena requires an individual to appear in court and provide testimony. It is commonly used in civil and criminal cases and may be issued to witnesses, victims, or other individuals with information relevant to the case.

Subpoena Duces Tecum

This type of subpoena requires an individual or organization to produce documents or other physical evidence for inspection. It is commonly used in civil and criminal cases where documentary evidence is needed to support a claim or defense. For example, a subpoena duces tecum may be issued to a bank to provide financial records related to a case.

Subpoena for Deposition

This type of subpoena requires an individual to give a deposition, which is a recorded statement made under oath. Depositions may be conducted before trial and are used to gather evidence or to determine the credibility of witnesses.

Subpoena Ad Testificandum and Duces Tecum

As you may have deduced, this type of subpoena combines the features of both the subpoena ad testificandum and the subpoena duces tecum. It requires an individual to appear in court to provide testimony and also to bring with them documents or other physical evidence related to the case.

It's important to note that failure to comply with a subpoena can result in legal consequences, such as fines or even imprisonment. If you receive a subpoena, it's essential to seek legal advice to understand your rights and obligations. If you have concerns about a subpoena or need to issue one yourself, consult an attorney who can guide you through the process. And if you need a subpoena delivered, contact Colorado Attorney Services.
