Personal service of documents is often required. Some court orders specify that the documents must be served personally. You could attempt that yourself, but logistics, cost, and the fact that the person that you will be attempting to serve will probably know you means that this could hinder success. Diem Legal’s process servers are discreet and professional. We will go the extra mile to achieve successful service including working ‘out of hours’ and attempting service at the respondents place of work, gym, or other premises. This is usually in the event that they try and avoid service in the first instance.
Our experienced process servers follow a strict set of rules and special instructions provided to us from the court, in accordance with the type of serve. Different classification of court summons require a specific process to be followed. This is paramount, to ensure the prompt and legal serving of the summons.

If we know they are deliberately avoiding us at a specific premises, we’ll think outside of the box to get the desired result. An affidavit or witness statement is produced by our process agent and this provides proof of service to the court.
