Investigations, Security, Process Service, Training

Most civil actions are initiated via “service of process” This is the usual method whereby all the parties involved in a civil action are officially notified that they are being sued or possibly subpoenaed as a witness.  Every state has established and published rules of civil procedure. Your  case cannot go forward until this notification has been completed in strict accordance with those rules. A person being sued will  know this and will do everything possible to avoid service and delay the inevitable.  

You could save money and use the sheriffs office to serve your summons but be prepared to wait awhile.  To be fair, they have to serve criminal warrants first. Civil process is done when they have time.  Usually when they have a few minutes to spare between 9 and 5.  The target knows that they don’t have to open the door for a civil issue, so they don’t.  After a few tries your subpoena is tossed into the rear seat where the K-9 officer sleeps on it it for a week or two. Sometime after that it gets turned back in as unserved and the process starts all over again with a new fee. (Please see disclaimer regarding NC service of summons by sheriff.)
