Requirements for
Service of Process

In order to have your court papers served,  you must
follow certain rules:

The person who serves the  summons, complaint or
petition or other legal document  must be 18 years or
older and he/she must not be a person listed in the court
papers as a defendant or a plaintiff  (A party).

Any person of suitable age and discretion can serve
court papers but he/she cannot serve over five cases per
year. If you serve more than five cases per year you must
obtain a process server license from the corresponding
authority. If serving court papers in New York City it is
mandatory to possess a license from the Department of
Consumers Affairs.

It May Be Better to Hire a Licensed Process Server

You case could be dismissed or delayed (adjourned) if
improper service of process is effected. Failure to follow
rules may occur if you send your friend or sister to deliver
your papers because she/he may not be aware of the
procedures, the deadlines and rules for process serving
in Nassau County, Kings County, Queens County and
Suffolk County. Indeed there are attorneys who have lost
cases because of poor process service (Doing the job
themselves or failing to follow the rules or
misrepresenting facts)

All New York Professional Process Servers Must:

1- Have a current licensed from the  New York City
Department of Consumers Affairs. Never hire a process
server in New  York City if  he cannot produce a license.

2- Have knowledge of the process serving laws,
procedures and the rules for serving process in New

3- Keep detailed records of all process service activities
(Forms to register information about recipients of
process: Description, time, place, etc)
Have access to a computerized system that  enables
production of forms, records and affidavits of service to
adapt to each individual case, court, and         

4-Know the geographical area covered

5-Provide some type of contract (in writing or orally) as to
how much service will cost and when service will take
place, with assurances that the client is dealing with a
licensed process server.
