WHAT IS A PROCESS SERVER?
A process server is a person who serves (delivers) court documents such as Statements of Claim, summons, writs, subpoenas, complaints and other legal documents upon an opposing party (e.g., a defendant or an individual involved in a court case). They provide proof of service usually in the form of a sworn Affidavit of Service which is the standard proof accepted by the courts in Canada. No Affidavit of Service? No proof of service.
PROCESS SERVERS GENERALLY OFFER THESE SERVICES:
- Service of Process: Process servers will handle most document services on your behalf. They serve Statements of Claims, summonses, complaints, writs, subpoenas, and other legal documents.
- Issuing and Filing at the Court: Process servers will attend local courthouses on your behalf to file or issue documents in a new action or add to an existing file.
- Litigation Searches: Process servers will attend the local courthouses and search court records for requested documents
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Generally, process servers charge a flat rate for each attempted service and a mileage charge. The costs probably will average about $100 for common situations, but always ask for a quote before retaining any Process Server.
