A process server should be an extension of your firm and you should expect nothing less. Our standard for process server excellence is above the rest; our Arizona process servers conduct themselves with the highest level of integrity and reliability and we won’t tolerate anything less. Arizona Process Server Associates are vetted by a thorough background check, have been through a stringent three level interview process and sign a custom contract accepting that they will abide by our standards of ethics, and agreeing to use the mobile app for service completed. Our management team personally trains every new server, regardless of their level of experience, in the methodology and technology that Process Server Associates demands.
Besides residential, we have extensive experience serving process in the following settings:
When serving a registered agent for a business entity you should always take the time to check who the Registered Agent is for that entity via the Secretary of State website for the state you are serving the legal documents in. Serving a Registered Agent is not always as simple as serving CT Corporation, Corporation Service Company and National Registered Agents. Sometimes the Registered Agent is an individual, attorney or the owner of the business. Many businesses can move locations without amending the address of the registered agent, and individuals may try to avoid service.
Serving legal documents at U.S. military bases is extremely time consuming and can take from 3 days to 2 weeks for service to be completed, depending on the base and essential offices. Initially, we are required to speak with the Military Police (MP) on base and notify them that we are serving legal documents on an individual located inside the base. The MP will then connect us with the Judge Advocate General (JAG). Once the JAG office has granted us the authorization to serve the subject, MP will escort us to the person to be served or contact the superior officer of the subject to make them available.
Inmate service of process is relatively simple, but can be time consuming. Most prisons in the United States allow process servers to serve inmates, but some prefer the local sheriff to handle it. If you know your subject is in jail, please contact that jail to verify their process for serving inmates. Note that we do charge hourly for this service, as it could take hours for the prison personnel to pull the individual into a holding cell to then be available for service of process.
Most police stations request that we speak with the sergeant, watch commander and they will readily make the officer available or offer an agent to accept service on the officer’s behalf.
At PSA, process service across the country is as easy as serving nearby. We advance all fees, manage service timelines, rules of civil procedure; and ensure quality control on the affidavit and proof of service.
