Introduction to Court Pleadings & Other Docs: For Process Servers

Learn to recognize the documents you will be using on a daily basis.

About this course:

As a process server you will be asked to serve many kinds of documents. Some states have restrictions as to which you are authorized to serve. Too, many of the documents require different service methods. Lastly, many of the pleadings require different language be included in the proof of service for it to be valid.

If you are a new process server, or if you have been serving in one area of specialty (such as criminal, civil or family) you may be unfamiliar with all of the options out there. And, many times, such as in Arizona, the laws require YOU to ensure that the documents are "valid on their face" which can be hard to do if you don't even know what you're looking at!

In this course we will review the most common pleadings, the styling or caption, scenarios surrounding service and some advice on things to include in the proof of service.
