Process Serving is the name given when a person has to receive legal documents but posting them isn’t sufficient; the legal documents must be delivered to the named person, by hand.

Depending on the type of documents being ‘served’, the person receiving the documents, is known as the Defendant or the Respondent.

The person issuing the legal papers is known as the Claimant, Applicant, or Petitioner, depending on the type of legal papers being served. The person “serving” the documents is impartial and is known as a “Process Server”.

We have a network of Process Servers across the UK serving legal documents on behalf of the Claimant, Applicant or Petitioner. The instruction to serve documents is typically instructed by their solicitor.

The type of documents that can be served include:

  • Divorce Petitions
  • Claim Forms
  • Bankruptcy Petitions
  • Non-Molestation Orders
  • Statutory Demands
  • Orders To Attend Court

(this list is not exhaustive)

How does Process Serving work?

Once the order has been issued from the court, the process is as follows:

  • The solicitor or client will instruct A H Jones Investigators to serve the order
  • We will mobilise a local Process Server
  • The Process Server will serve the documents
  • We will provide the solicitor or client with confirmation of service

We conduct Process Serving nationwide, and beyond. To find out more, visit our Process Server page.
