Instruct Local Process Servers in the UK | PB Process Servers UK | Fixed Fee Legal Service
A Process Server is a person who delivers "serves" legal process to defendants, respondents or claimants.
Service of court process “court documents” gives the other party notice of the court proceedings and the Courts jurisdiction on the matter. Once served, the defendant, respondent or claimant will often be required to respond to court before a given date or they may be required to attend a court hearing.
One of the quickest and most reliable ways to get court proceedings served in the UK, is by instructing a Process Server to do this for you. Service of process is covered under CPR which set the rules for service in England and Wales. A Process Server will know how to serve the different court proceedings he or she receives. A Process Server will normally charge a fixed fee which includes multiple visits to the address when required and the provision of a certificate of service, statement of service or affidavit. Sometimes a Process Server may agree an hourly rate and mileage to serve the papers.
If you want to instruct a Process Server you could do this by email or post. You will need to send them the paperwork that need to be served along with your instructions for service. If you are posting instructions, you will need to send at least two copies to the Process Server. A Process Server may offer some help but cannot really tell you what to serve as it can differ from case to case. You should seek legal advice if you are unsure.
It is important to ensure the correct court papers are served. Often you will be required to personally serve the defendant or respondent. This means handing the court proceedings to, or leaving them with that person or company you are serving. You may be able to serve the papers by inserting them through the letterbox or leaving them at an address, but it is important to know how and when this can be done. A Process Server will know how to serve the papers they receive from you. Once served the Process Server will then be able to provide you with evidence of service to file at court.
