Important Questions to Ask a Process Server Before Hiring Them
Your client’s complaint is filed and summons issued by Colorado’s 2nd Judicial District, which includes Denver County… now it’s time to find a process server!
Be sure to only use an experienced process server, like those here at Accurate Serve® in Denver, to ensure the legitimacy of your case. Our servers know all of the laws, follow the rules, and provide valid and timely proof of service.
No matter which process server you are considering hiring, you should always ask:
What relevant experience do you have?
If you are trying to serve a defendant or witness with a history of evasion, you’ll want a process server with the experience necessary to hunt them down. You should also inquire about specific industries where the potential server has worked or if they specialize in a certain demographic.
What about proof of service?
Always ask how and when proof of service will be provided, and if the server files this proof with the court as well. If service by substitution or publication is likely in your case, ask about their procedures for proof of service in those cases as well.
Will I get daily updates?
Some attorneys want frequent updates on their case’s process, while others just want to know that the job was done. With Accurate Serve®, you can log-in to your online account anytime to view the status of your case right on our website, so you’re always as updated as you want to be.
How much do you charge?
There’s never an easy answer to this, as there is no way to know how difficult it will be to locate a defendant or witness for your case. For easy to locate defendants and witnesses, you can expect to be charged just a base fee. On the other hand, for difficult to locate targets, those fees will climb as the amount of work to find them increases. Be prepared by providing the process server with addresses, phone numbers, and other information that will help them locate the intended process recipient, and your process serving fees will be significantly lower.
