Serving Court Papers

It’s important we are fully up-to-date on the latest legislation, to reduce the lifecycle of the case, and eliminate any holdups due to incorrect service of process. A phone call or email is not initially sufficient to comply with the rules of process serving in the UK. The law usually states that the defendant must be notified in person of the proceedings against them.


What is a Process Server?

A Process Server serves notifications on a variety of legal proceedings, including divorce, bankruptcy, injunctions and writs. Different classification of court summons require a unique process to serve it legally (Service Of Process). 

 Service of Process

Wax Jacket will visit the home of the respondent of the court summons. We may also visit their place of employment, if they cannot be contacted at home. Occasionally, we will deliver the court summons or other documents via a letterbox if we are permitted to do so. Most legal documents must be delivered in person, unless prior permission has been obtained via the court dealing with the case.

The court orders we serve are usually time-sensitive – so we will act quickly. Even if it means working unsociable hours to get a positive result. We often work long into the evening, but we’ll use our experience and common sense before knocking on a respondents door late in the day.

Proof of Service

In addition to serving the court summons or notice, we will also file a report and complete an affidavit or witness statement. An affidavit of service is a written statement confirmed by oath, for use as evidence in court. A witness statement is not usually signed under oath, but must be completed accurately and truthfully, to prevent delays to the court process.

We document each step of the service of process, to ensure that each and every case is handled in a legal and efficient manner. We ensure that you are kept abreast of any case developments, via realtime updates.

How the service of process works

Fast and reliable Process Agent

Our local process server will attempt service within hours of being instructed. We include two more follow up visits (if required) within our affordable fixed fees. Background information research, and an affidavit or witness statement are also part of our service. In some complex cases, or overseas instructions, affidavits may have to be sworn by a Notary Public. There will be a separate fee for this if it is required.

Our process servers visit at a time that promotes the target of the serve being present. We will do our homework, to ensure the best chance of success. Experience matters, and our skilled team of process servers know how to get results and save time and money. This is backed up by our high service of process success rate.
