What Process Servers are NEVER Allowed to Do
As process servers, we play a pivotal role in the legal system, ensuring that parties involved in a case receive the necessary documents in a timely and lawful manner. At Accurate Serve of Denver, we pride ourselves on meeting and exceeding the standards set out for process servers in Colorado. But what is equally important to the services we offer, are the things that we are never allowed to do as process servers. Let’s explore some of these restrictions:
Process Servers May NOT Serve Process Without Meeting the Basic State Requirements
To serve process in Colorado, one must be at least 18 years old and must not be a party to the case being served. These are basic requirements set forth by the Colorado Rules of Civil Procedure, and any service performed without meeting these criteria is invalid and illegal.
Process Servers May NOT Give Legal Advice
Although process servers are an integral part of the legal process, we are not lawyers and are not allowed to give legal advice. Our expertise lies in delivering the necessary documents to the right individuals in accordance with the law. For legal counsel, it’s best to consult a licensed attorney.
Process Servers May NOT Use a Disguise or Impersonate Anyone
Process servers must be forthright about their identity. Using a disguise, or impersonating anyone, including police officers, firefighters, government employees, EMS, delivery drivers, etc., is strictly forbidden.
Process Servers May NOT Omit Proof of Service
After serving the legal documents, it is required to provide proof of service. This verification is critical for the progression of the case and its omission can have serious legal consequences. At Accurate Serve, we provide our clients with proof of service via our online status tracker, available 24/7 on our website.
Process Servers May NOT Break the Law
Process servers must conduct their duties within the bounds of the law. This means that actions such as trespassing, breaking and entering, assault, harassment, communicating threats, and any other illegal activities are expressly prohibited.
Process Servers May NOT Act Unethically
Ethical conduct is paramount in our line of work. Misrepresentation, dishonesty, or any form of unethical behavior is not tolerated.
Process Servers May NOT Not Carry and Provide Proper Identification
To protect the parties involved, process servers must carry and present proper identification when serving process. It’s a fundamental requirement that safeguards everyone’s rights and guarantees the legitimacy of the service.
