WHAT IS A PROCESS SERVER?

Process servers are hired by law offices, accountants, doctors, and individuals to give legal notice to a person of a court request of the served party to respond to a proceeding before that court. These court documents are known as process and are typically delivered, or served, by a legal process server to ensure safe and timely delivery.
