Process Servers serve documents, usually court documents, court processes, but we also deliver private papers. We provide a documents delivery server covering the Greater Sydney area, through to Newcastle, and are networked across regional New South Wales (NSW), with our local, licensed, NSW process server, NSW private agents, NSW field agents.
For some documents you may see a reference to a 'sealed' copy to be
served. This is not referring to sealed in an envelope, the court seal,
or stamp, signifies that the form has been processed by the court, and
assigned a court date (usually found in a box in the top right of a
front page, showing the court location and date, along with a reference
number). Some international forms we serve have an embossed stamp (a
raised stamp), rather than just the ink used generally in Australia.
A NSW process server is a person licensed as a New South Wales process server or a sub-agent (class of CAPI licence). They are entitled to enter a property for the
purpose of serving a document, to make inquiries, to establish if the
person resides at an address or when they will return if personal
service is required. There is a common law right to go up to someone's
door, for this purpose. The court has an expectation that reasonable
attempts at service will be made, and that if a person is avoiding
service, or cannot be reasonably found, the court may instruct that we
do a substitute service. Some documents can be left with another person
at a residence (substitute service), for the person or entity named when
initially attempting service. This is still considered a served court
document, it is a form of effective service. Many people have very
little experience in court processes, especially those applying for a divorce, a process server is a person experienced in this area.
