Process Serving

When assigning service of process, you have the option of either our per-attempt or flat rate fees.  Per-attempt fees are best for business addresses, or service of process that will not require more than one attempt.  Flat rate fees provide UNLIMITED attempts (unless we determine it's a bad address OR defendant is avoiding service), proof of service and witness fees for one package price.

Ask us about our VIDEO CAPTURE service, available on most serves.  (Additional fees may apply.)

TURNAROUND TIME- First attempt within 3 to 5 days of receipt, a total of three attempts within 10 business days.  There is no charge for RUSH "within our capacity"...which simply means we may attempt within hours of receipt but pre-existing or paid rush orders will take priority.
