Personal service of documents is required for many court cases. Court orders can 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 the chance of success. Our 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.
Our experienced team 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 in order to be served correctly. This is paramount, to ensure the prompt and legal serving of the summons and eliminate unnecessary holdups to the case.
We have local process servers throughout the UK to attempt service within hours of being instructed. We include two more follow up visits within our affordable fixed fees when they are required. Our process server will visit at a time that promotes the target being present. We will do our homework to ensure the best chance of success. 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 following successful service to provide proof of service to our client and the court.
An affidavit of service is a written statement confirmed by oath, for use as evidence in court.
A witness statement is not usually signed under oath, but must be completed accurately and truthfully. This additional documentation will help prevent any delays to the court process.
In some complex cases, or overseas instructions, affidavits may have to be sworn by a Notary Public. There is a separate fee for this if it is required.
We accept Legally-Aided cases for service of legal papers, and comply with the rate structure that such cases require. Our serves are broken down into mileage and time in accordance with the LAA rates for process servers. Please advise us if your cases is funded by Legal Aid when you instruct us. This will help us to handle your request in the most efficient way.
