What is Service of Process?

Service of Process is when legal documents such as summonses, complaints, subpoenas, writs and other court documents are delivered to the individual to whom the legal document is directed. Service of Process must be served by an individual who is not a party to the case and is properly certified..

What does a Process Server do?

A legal process server delivers (or serves) legal documents to a defendant or an individual involved in a court case. The process server must serve the documents in accordance with the legislation in the area of service. This may mean handing the documents to the defendant personally or sub-serving to someone in the same household or business. Once the documents are delivered, the process serving agent must provide proof that the papers were served. This is done through a document call an Affidavit of Service, also called a Proof of Service, which must be notarized and given to the party who requested service.

Process servers can also file your papers with the courts, can do document retrieval and may offer various types of investigations: skip trace, people locates, surveillance, etc.

Do I need a Process Server?

Hiring a Legal Process Server is an important step in proceeding with a court case. In Arkansas a process server is specifically authorized by the court to serve legal documents.

How much does it cost to get papers served?

Process serving rates can vary from case to case and state to state. Same day or rush serves are typically billed at a higher rate. The cost of a routine serve (a serve that is first attempted within 5-7 days of receiving the papers) can be as low as $65 and can go up to $100, but the national average is somewhere between $45 and $75. At Arkansas Investigations, we recommend you contact multiple process servers that cover a particular area. You will want to ask them about cost, TAT (turn-around-time) and number of attempts.

Why use Arkansas Investigations?

We are experienced and we know how to efficiently serve your documents. Process service is not our primary business, but because we constantly have to find people that don't want to be found, this is a logical extension of our many services.

We have subscriptions and licenses for over 23 different database systems, most of which are not available to the public. We use that information to find people

Sometimes it's easy to match up the results of our database checks with the person you're seeking, sometimes not. It's an art, not a science. Obviously, the more information you have about someone, the easier it is and the better the chances of finding that person.

We're often asked about finding people. Generally we have a good bit of success. Unfortunately it's not always that way. If we were to give a percentage, we'd have to say that we can find some information on about 75-80 percent of the inquiries we get.
