Qualities to Look for in a Process Server
Using a credible process server in Colorado is highly recommended. While the state’s laws about who can be a process server are fairly lenient, if you use an illegitimate process server, any service provided will be invalid and your case might even get thrown out. Make sure any process server you use checks off all of the following boxes:
Meets State Requirements
While Colorado doesn’t require certification or training for process servers like some other states do, there are two basic requirements. To serve process in Colorado you must:
- Be 18 years old or older
- Not be directly involved with any case being served
Sheriff’s deputies are also allowed to serve process in Colorado.
Reputable process servers are very knowledgeable about laws and current trends related to process serving in their location. Red flags that you’re dealing with an illegitimate process server include:
- They wear a disguise or lie about their identity while serving process
- They give process recipients advice about their cases
- They threaten or try to intimidate process recipients
- They engage in illegal activities while serving, such as breaking and entering
