Process serving is an essential component of the legal system, ensuring that individuals are properly notified of legal actions against them. It's a service that we are proud to offer at Colorado Attorney Services. However, there are several common misconceptions about the process serving profession that can lead to misunderstandings. Let’s see if we can clear a few of them up here today.
One common misconception is that process servers are similar to bounty hunters. While both professions involve locating individuals, their purposes are entirely different. Process servers are focused on delivering legal documents, such as summons and subpoenas, as part of the legal notification process. They do not apprehend or detain individuals.
Some people believe that process servers use deceitful or unethical methods to serve legal documents, such as pretending to be someone else. In reality, process servers are typically required to follow strict legal guidelines and ethical standards when performing their duties. Using deception can lead to the service being invalidated.
While process servers are often persistent and creative in their efforts to serve documents, they are still bound by legal regulations regarding when and how documents can be served. This means they cannot trespass or engage in illegal activities to complete service. Serving someone in their workplace or residence during reasonable hours is usually the standard practice.
While there are relatively few formal educational requirements to become a process server, it's not a profession that anyone can simply pick up without proper training and knowledge of relevant laws and regulations. Process servers must understand the legal requirements for service in their jurisdiction, which can be complex.
Some people believe that process servers are confrontational or aggressive when delivering legal documents. In reality, most process servers aim to be professional and respectful when serving documents, avoiding unnecessary conflicts or confrontations.
While serving court documents is a significant part of a process server's job, they may also be involved in serving a variety of legal documents, including divorce papers, eviction notices, child custody orders, and more. Their role extends beyond just court-related matters.
While personal service is often preferred, there are alternative methods for serving legal documents, such as leaving them with a family member, mailing them via certified mail, or publishing a notice in a newspaper. Process servers must follow the appropriate method as specified by law.
And there you have it! A few common misconceptions about process serving debunked. If you are interested in becoming a process server or you need to hire one, reach out to Colorado Attorney Services today.
