Process serving is a term used to serve any type of legal Papers upon an individual, buisiness, or company.
In the case of an individual, Papers are usually served at the debtors place of residence, but it is also possible to serve them at their place of employment, or indeed, at most places that you are likely to meet the debtor.
Papers are served at businesses premises, or in the case of companies, either at their place of business or at their registered office.
We are able to serve Papers anywhere in the United Kingdom, and are able to arrange service at most places throughout the World.
After Papers have been served, depending on the type of Papers served; Certificates or Affidavits of Service are drafted and prepared, and again depending on the type of Papers, sworn on Oath at a County Court, Commissioner for Oaths, or a Notary Public.
If a debtor is avoiding service, it is possible to serve Papers by “Substituted Service”, after first informing the debtor that is the process that will be followed. This means personally delivering a “Letter of Appointment” through the letter box of the debtor, informing them when we will next call to serve the Papers, and offering the possibility of serving the said papers at their solicitor, if they have authorization to accept service. The Letter of Appointment will also state that if the debtor is not in attendance when we next call. “Substituted Service” will be effected by either placing the Papers through the letter box, or through an advertisement in the local press.
