Welcome To Our Blog

At Houston Process Severs, we focus not only on providing exceptional service to all our valued clients, but also on expanding the knowledge and understanding of the typical duties of a process server.

With that in mind, we have assembled the latest news, questions, articles, and insights surrounding being a process server in Houston and the larger surrounding areas. These articles range from diving into the details of who can be served papers at specific times or days of the week to whether or not a process server can wear a disguise as part of their job role.

In the world of legal documents, process servers are the unsung heroes. These individuals are tasked with getting your legal paperwork served to its intended recipient in a timely manner. They ensure that people receive their summonses, subpoenas, and other court documents quickly so they can appear at hearings or trials on time.

Many of our blog posts concern the legality of sending and receiving court documents. Process Servers are critical to the legal system. The justice system is inundated with so much paperwork and cases that having a process server deliver and distribute information is vital to the efficient functions of the courts. Instead of having Sherriff deputies, lawyers, or police officers handle this task, it can be outsourced to experienced and proven experts like our team.

Without process servers, lawsuits would never get served, and the systems we all rely upon would take years longer than necessary. Process servers help bring people into courtrooms where judges can decide their cases reasonably and efficiently.

Process Servers are necessary for the legal system to function at all levels: federal, state, and local government agencies/courts, public law offices such as prosecutor’s offices or public defender’s offices, private law firms, including small general practice firms, large national or international law firms, and more. 

A process server is someone who has been hired to deliver legal documents, such as subpoenas and summonses. Process servers are not lawyers and cannot give legal advice. We must follow the rules of their state or jurisdiction when delivering documents on behalf of an attorney or organization, such as a court.

Our blog mainly focuses on process server information related to residents of the greater Houston area. That is because our team primarily does business in Montgomery, Harris, and Fort Bend counties. We also can directly service the Harris County jail with our process serving or notary services.

Many of our process server blog’s topics refer to our complimentary services. This includes skip tracing and mobile notaries. We maintain a team of skip tracing experts, often from law enforcement backgrounds, which can track down people who may have gone missing, are trying to avoid process service, or have a legal obligation they wish to not acknowledge. This is a unique service that many people love to read more about.

We also provide mobile notary services. Houston is a vibrant city with a high need for notaries to witness and validate the signatures of everything from business contracts to legal documents. We are mobile because it makes it easier to reach those clients who need service sooner than later.

Please enjoy reading about the various process server topics we cover. If you would like to contact our professional team at Houston Process Severs, feel free to use our request form on our homepage. We primarily work with law offices, attorneys, law enforcement, government agencies, some big businesses, and courts as clients. You can also send us a question or a topic you would like to see covered on our blog through our contact form.

Thank you for reading more about process servers. We hope this information is valuable to you when picking a qualified and professional team to help serve legal documents.
