The days when the only people who could hire process servers were businesses and legal firms are long gone. Today, process serving in Toronto, ON area reaches long and wide and the professionals at Select-Document Services Inc, are serving and delivering documents for the general public as well. However, how do you tell when it’s okay to have papers served by just anyone or when it’s best to hire the professionals? Read on below for some answers to whether you need to hire a process server or not.
In Some Places You Must Have a License
You can check for yourself with the area you live in, but many places you can only have process serving in Toronto, ON done by someone who is licensed, insured, and bonded. That means that in those places, you won’t be able to hire someone who isn’t to deliver documents to someone to appear in court. To avoid this, it’s best to hire the professionals to begin with, so that you know that no mistake has been made that might hurt your case in court.
Federal Laws and State Laws
If you feel like researching all federal and state laws as to who can do the serving and who can be served, then it is possible that you can serve the papers without a legal professional. However, if you truly don’t understand the law and you are a busy person, you don’t have time for the research and hassle, and are better off hiring the professionals to do the job for you.
It’s Not Always Easy
The one thing to remember is that not all people, hardly any actually, want to be served with papers to come to court. It is possible that someone who doesn’t want to be served could become angry and take it out on the person serving the papers. You don’t want that person to be someone who can’t defend themselves. The trained process servers know how to take care of themselves in these situations. So, wouldn’t you rather leave it to them than risk someone getting hurt?
These are just a few reasons that you should hire a process server to deliver your legal documents. For more information on process serving in Toronto, ON, contact the professionals at Select-Document Services Inc, for more information on the products and services they offer to their customers.
