A Process Server issues legal documents to a Defendant, Respondent or Debtor; these papers must be delivered by hand.

Once an order has been agreed by a judge and issued from the court, a solicitor will instruct a Process Server agent, such as AH Jones, to serve the order, or legal documents.

Legal papers

Process Servers hand-deliver a wide range of legal documents, such as:

  • Divorce petitions

  • Bankruptcy petitions

  • Debt orders

  • Injunctions

  • Orders to attend court

  • Statutory demands

  • High Court Writs
