Why Would You Need a Process Server?
The service of process explained
Attorneys are familiar with the process of serving legal documents, but the general public is not – that is, until the need arises. If you bring a lawsuit against another party, the law requires that notice be provided to those persons affected by your lawsuit. Usually this means making a “true copy” (exact and complete copy) of the claim, complaint, motion or petition filed in court, and having it hand-delivered to the other party, along with a Summons, setting forth the deadline for a response so they can ask to appear in front of the court before a final decision is made about the issue, and the consequences of failing to respond.
Oregon law requires the person
filing an action with the court to ensure that the other party be served those
within or without this state, in any manner reasonably calculated, under all
the circumstances, to apprise the defendant of the existence and pendency of
the action and to afford a reasonable opportunity to appear and defend. There are different methods of service
depending on what the documents are, and whether the entity being served is an
individual, a corporation, a trust, a partnership, a minor, an incapacitated
person, a tenant of a mail agent, the State or a public body.
process servers know exactly what to do and how to do it correctly and
safely. They ensure that proof of
their service (a form documenting how service was actually made on the other
party), is filed with the court in a timely manner. Hiring a professional to provide this service is well worth
the small fee, and provides you with peace of mind knowing that your documents
were handled and filed legally according to the Rules of Civil Procedure for
the State of Oregon.
