What is a process server?
The role of the “process server” is an important one in the field of debt recovery and it is a service that an outsourced credit management company will provide.
What does a process server do?
Process servers are engaged in a variety of tasks that are involved in the debt recovery process, including document retrieval, filing court papers, and serving legal documents.
However, the main role of the process server is to “serve” legal documents on the debtor or defendant.
Once legal documents have been served, the process server is required to deliver proof that they have served the papers. That verification is called the proof of service or affidavit of service. The affidavit of service must be presented to the client who requested the service of the papers.
It is a legal requirement for process service to present the papers in the correct manner, as set out under the statute of law for that country, region, or state.
What’s so important about process service?
Service of process is significant for a number of reasons. Process servers play a crucial role in that they form an essential part of civil society, ensuring that legal papers are served in a timely, appropriate, and effective manner.
The court will be unable to make a ruling on a case that relates to an individual or company if the papers are not served correctly, and, as a consequence, the entire case could be rejected by the court. So, when it comes to recovering debts through the courts, it’s vital that process is served correctly, ideally by a representative from an experienced, qualified collections agency.
When it comes to debt recovery, a process server plays a vital role in starting the legal process to recoup the money that you are owed.
If the process is served incorrectly, the court may throw the case out, and you may not be able to recover your debts. Collections agencies are experienced in process serving and should always be consulted for professional advice and assistance in cases where other means have failed to recover monies that you are owed.
