How to Treat a Process Server

How to Treat a Process Server


  • Step 1:

    Be polite and accept what they are serving you. Why? Because this process server has to file a sworn affidavit with the court stating that they served you, and they have to note the manner in which you received it. This could affect your credibility as a party in the legal action.

  • Step 2:

    Don’t hide from them when they come to your door.

  • Step 3:

    Don’t have someone lie for you and say you’re not home or you don’t live there any more. They could be charged with obstructing justice.

  • Step 4:

    If you avoid them for a period of time and then they finally are able to serve you, when you come before the judge, don’t say that you didn’t know they were looking for you or that they never came to your home before. Every visit the server makes is recorded and the judge already knows the truth.

  • Step 5:

    Don’t ask the process server any legal questions because they are not authorized to give legal advice. You need to get yourself a lawyer for that.
