Common Challenges in International Process Service

Navigating Foreign Legal Systems

Each country has its own rules for serving legal papers. Those who serve them must have a good understanding of each country’s legislations. They need to follow these laws closely to avoid problems. This means understanding how and when to serve papers, and what documents to issue as legal proof.
