A process server is used to give legal notice to a person of a court’s intention to make them a party to a claim so as to enable them to respond to the proceedings before the court. An example could be, whenever someone is placed in bankruptcy, they must receive an order notifying them of upcoming claims and court dates. For instance, someone might be facing bankruptcy if they haven’t paid their bills or child support.
Notifying the defendant is the responsibility of the person filing the notice, this may be an individual acting alone, solicitors or the courts involved. In this age of technology-dependent communication, a phone call or email is not sufficient to notify them of proceedings and why a process server must be appointed. Defendants must personally be notified that actions are being taken against them, according to the law. However, due to legal requirements, only certain individuals are allowed to serve these notices. The individuals that fill this role are called process servers.

If a process server is unable to deliver the notice to the subject, they may also utilise a “substituted service.” This means that the process server instead delivers the notification to another legal adult resident of the household where the subject resides, with the understanding that the substitute will notify the subject. Our process servers have extensive knowledge of Scotland and cover localities, such as Edinburgh, Stranraer, Glasgow, Stirling, Fife, Perth, Dundee, Oban, Aberdeen, The Scottish Borders and Inverness.
