How to Serve a Court Order in the UKIt is important to ensure a Court Order is correctly and served on time to avoid the potentials costs of a wasted hearing and having to serve the Order again.
Serving a Court Order or Legal Papers in the UK can be a complicated process. There are many ways Court Orders can be served for example some Orders or Papers can simply be letterboxed at the address whereas others require Personal Service only. Other types of papers can be letterboxed at the address but only after a set process is followed.
To ensure the papers are served on time and served correctly it is wise to employ the service of a experienced Process Server. A Process Server will ensure that your papers are served as required. Once served the Process Server will usually provide you with either a Certificate of Service, a Statement of Service or a Sworn Affidavit confirming the date and time the documents were served and this is usually lodged with Court prior to the hearing.
Another benefit of using a Process Server is we are completely independent to the proceedings. We are not biased as to what we say or do. Therefore the proof of service provided by a Process Server may carry more weight than a statement made by yourself.
