The entertainment industry has perpetuated a lot of myths about the service of process. Unfortunately, many of these myths have been accepted as fact. It’s important to understand the truth about this industry so that you know when and how it can help you. Here are a couple of the things that you should know about what a process server really does.
Process Servers Don’t Wear Disguises
You may have seen a movie or heard tales of process servers dressing up in all sorts of disguises and pretending to be someone else in order to connect with the defendant in the case. The truth is that process servers are legal representatives, so they don’t use subterfuge to carry out their roles.
You Can’t Avoid Service
A common misconception is that, if you avoid service, you don’t ever have to go to court. The truth is that process servers don’t always have to hand the papers directly to you, and avoiding service doesn’t stop the legal proceedings. In fact, in many states, delivering the papers to your known address or employer can often be considered sufficient.
