WHAT IS SERVICE OF PROCESS?
According to legal procedure in the United States, all parties must be notified when facing legal action against them in a court of law or an administrative court. The notification, which is called service of process, is accomplished through the delivery of a set or series of documents describing the legal action. Examples of documents that comprise service of process includes summonses, complaints, subpoenas, writs, and other court documents. These documents are delivered to the individual whom the legal action is directed. Service of Process must be served by an individual who is not a party to the case.
