What is process serving in the UK?
Process serving is when legal documents that give notice of specific court actions are delivered to defendants or respondents. Process serving formally brings court orders, such as debt claims, judgments, enforcement and eviction notices, to the attention of the respondent. It also allows the respondent a certain amount of time from the date of service in order to respond to the notice.
Process servers will serve any legal document that requires personal service and proof of service to be binding. These include statutory demands for unpaid debts, witness summons, possession notices and orders, divorce and bankruptcy petitions, non-molestation orders and orders issued under the Children’s Act.
Why should I instruct a process server in the UK?
People generally respond better to process servers serving documents on them than claimants. Process servers are distanced from the case, and very experienced in dealing with difficult or reluctant people. What’s ideal about process servers who are also private investigators – like Global Investigations – is that sometimes debtors will go AWOL. They will move job or move house in the course of avoiding their debts. When this happens, a little private investigation is required to track them down. As it happens, Global Investigations are expert people tracers as well.
