Process Service Frequently Asked

How is Process Service on Special Entities Completed?2023-09-29T04:16:30-05:00

Texas has specific rules for serving legal documents to businesses, government entities, and other organizations. For example, when serving a corporation, the process server must deliver the documents to the registered agent for the corporation or another authorized representative. When serving a government entity, the process server must follow the specific rules outlined in the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure for that type of entity.

Is an Affidavit of Service Required?2023-09-29T04:16:09-05:00

After the service has been completed, the process server must provide an affidavit of service, also known as a proof of service or return of service. This document contains essential information such as the date, time, and location of the service, as well as the method used and a description of the person served. The affidavit of service is filed with the court as evidence that the legal documents have been properly served, and it plays a crucial role in ensuring that the legal proceedings can move forward.

What is Due Diligence?2023-09-29T04:15:47-05:00

Texas process servers are required to make diligent attempts to serve the legal documents. This typically involves multiple attempts to serve the documents at different times and days, with reasonable intervals between each attempt. If the process server cannot complete the service of process after several attempts, they may request the court’s permission to use an alternative service method.

What are the Timeframes for Process Service?2023-09-29T04:15:30-05:00

Texas process service must be completed within specific timeframes depending on the type of legal document for service of process.  These rules are established by the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure. We only use process servers who are familiar with local, state and national laws.  This ensures your papers are served quickly and legally within the proper time constraints.

What are the Methods of Service?2023-09-29T04:15:07-05:00

In Texas, legal documents can be served in various ways, including personal service (delivering the documents directly to the individual), substituted service (serving the documents to a suitable person at the recipient’s residence or place of business), or through certified mail. The specific method of service depends on the type of legal document and the requirements outlined in the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure.

How Are Process Servers Certified?2023-09-29T04:14:45-05:00

Texas law requires process servers to be certified by the Judicial Branch Certification Commission (JBCC). This ensures that the process servers have completed the necessary training and demonstrated their knowledge of Texas laws and regulations related to processing service.

Ben Yelverton, Scanes Yelverton Talbert LLP

Kathy and her team went above and beyond to provide around the clock trial support services for our team during our month long stay in Waco. Her amazing team handled our printing requests, managed our team’s daily transport to/from our hotel to the courthouse, assisted with warroom equipment/furniture rentals, and not once did she or her team complain of the grueling hours and stress that comes with this line of work. Her team was very knowledgeable of the WDTX local rules and the Court system in general. I was impressed that they were personally greeted by the Marshalls when they accompanied me on location with my materials, and I knew I was in good hands. She was an extension of my team, and she provided great work product. I highly recommend CTL Services, and look forward to working with them again.

Dependable and Trustworthy, those are just two words that I would use to describe Centex Litigation. No matter the time of day (or night) I know that I can reach out to Kathy, Brenda, Mark, or any member of their team and receive the upmost quality and professionalism. They are the first people I think of when I need anything to do with service, copies, or even record retrieval. They truly are a one-stop-shop. Even if it is not something they provide, they will take the time to help you find what you are looking for.
