Process service is the part of legal proceedings that demonstrates to the courts that all parties to the case know what is happening. You may also see the term service of process. When you bring a legal claim against someone, you must prove that they are aware of the action and have an opportunity to respond or appear. The documents issued to the other party receiving service describe which court is handling the case, the nature of the case, and any important dates in the case, such as a deadline to file a response.
