Serving Process in Michigan

In continuing our journey from state to state learning about process serving laws, this month we visit our most northern office, Accurate Serve® of Detroit. Did you know Michigan became a state in 1837? I like fun facts. Here is another: Our Detroit office opened up in October 2020, 184 years later. There’s no real connection, I know, just stating the facts.

So, moving on to serving process in Michigan.  Chapter 2 of Michigan Court Rules covers civil procedure.  A few highlights we would like to cover are below:

  • If you are an Attorney and filing a new suit, please be sure that your Summons includes everything listed in 2.102(B)
  • A Summons is good for 90 days, expires after 91, see 2.102(D)
  • 2.103(A-B) explains who can serve process AND the one type of process that MUST be served by law enforcement and not private process server
  • 2.104 covers Proof of Service.  MI courts require a specific/special Affidavit to be complete.  A blank one is attached for reference.
  • 2.105(A) covers the 2 types of service, Personal and certified mail.  Please note, if you serve an individual personally, they do not have to sign for it to accept.  BUT, if you try to serve someone via certified mail, they MUST sign for it to make service valid.

There are more Rules and stuff that can be covered. If you would like more info on Michigan Rules of Civil procedure, please visit the following website: Click Here

And if you are a Detroit, MI Attorney (or close by) and need process served in MI or anywhere in the US, please contact your local Owner/Operator, Erik Devlin with Accurate Serve® of Detroit.

If you are an Attorney and have an established point of contact with Accurate Serve®, we thank you kindly and appreciate all the work you send us year in, year out. Whether that is 1 paper or 1,000 papers, we value your business and will work tirelessly to ensure your papers are served quickly and accurately.

Warmest regards,
Beau Charlet

We are uniquely suited to manage and attend to your service of process needs. Once you send a job to us and you have our contact info, you never need to look for another process server again. We can serve everything from Summons and complaints, or writs, or subpoenas, and even just strongly worded letters.

From East to West

Last month we touched on the different classification of Process Servers in Florida. From our far east state to our far west, this month, we are all about the Ins and Outs of serving process in Colorado. The state association for process servers in Colorado is called PSACO or Process Servers Association of Colorado. I applied for membership in 2020 and was accepted, thanks PSACO representatives, members, etc. My website proudly displays our membership logo, see below:

Process Servers Association of Colorado

Fellow Accurate Serve® Team Member, Brennan Fogarty, is also a member of PSACO.  He is also the proud Owner of Accurate Serve® of Denver.

To know how to do something well, you need to know the basics.  Well, to be as basic as possible, CO rules of SOP are as follows:

  • Can NEVER Drop Serve, 18 to sub serve.  To sub serve, must be a direct family member at least 18 years old.

So, you can call those the meat and potatoes of CO PS but we are making Shepherd’s Pie, so there is a lot more to it.  Luckily for us, PSACO has made a nice little cheat sheet to aide those in the legal field, see attached.

A quick note:

  • CO requires an Affidavit of Service (AOS) w/ notary.  When Covid-19 became a widespread pandemic, CO courts started to allow Returns of Service (ROS) w/o notary

From FL to CO (and AL, MI, GA and TX too), we have you covered.  If you are a Denver Attorney (or paralegal) reach out to our Denver office please.  If you are located in one of these states, find your right point of contact with our organization.  Please visit our franchise website and use the cool tool, Find Location, feature.  It’s red and currently in the Pacific Ocean.

Happy New Year! Each January marks the beginning of a new year, a fresh start and new goals to achieve. This January also marks the beginning of our second office opening in TX. Accurate Serve® of Houston will work side by side with Accurate Serve® of Dallas to provide Houston Attorneys and Paralegals with a Professional Process Serving company that will handle local, statewide, nationwide and international service of process.

Our team is here to provide you with quick response time to all emails, including confirmation of new jobs. No matter the location of service we provide timely updates on all attempts as well as job completion notifications.

All servers, including our locals ones are provided with instructions on how to serve each job and completed service is only accepted by our office if the job is served in accordance with the instructions. This allows you to also provide us with special instructions such as serving someone at an alternate location (Work or family/friends house), contacting someone to set up service or sitting on a location for surveillance in order to get a job done. Any additional information or special instructions for service is appreciated and communicated with our servers to help complete service more efficiently for you.

As we move forward in this new year please reach out to our new offices in TX as we are looking forward to the opportunity to earn your business. We have our goals set high and look forward to having you and your team as a part of our Accurate Serve® Family.

As you can see in the CO cheat sheet, some papers can be sub served but some need to be personally served.  There are specific rules/laws for each state that need to be followed. We pride ourselves in our knowledge BUT if you need something special on a serve you send us, please let us know. This will only ensure accuracy of delivery.

We have had questions on Motion & Order in Process Serving, so my article this month is an article re-pull from a few years ago. The below describes M&O for PS in FL in detail.

In Florida, you have 2 options when it comes to serving your civil process.  You can go with the Sheriff or a private process server. The Sheriff has a lot of responsibilities other than serving papers whereas here at Accurate Serve, all we do all day every day is serve papers.

Florida has 3 classifications for private process servers and they are detailed below:

  1. Special Process Servers
  2. Certified Process Servers
  3. Process Server by Motion & Order

A Special Process Server is a Process Server who has been appointed by the Sheriff to serve non-enforceable civil process in that county. Basic requirements to become a special process server include: Permanent Resident of the State, 18 years of age, no mental/legal disabilities. You also have to take a class, pass a test, pay a fee, get a background check, stay in good-standing, re-certify annually and maintain your ID card. See 48.021 for more info.

A Certified Process Server is a Process Server who has been certified by the Chief Judge to serve non-enforceable civil process in that circuit. The qualifications needed mirror the ones listed for Special Process Server. The main difference is the certification goes through the courts not the Sheriff and you are certified to serve process in the whole circuit, not just one county. See 48.27, 48.29 and 48.31

And now for the last and most dreaded one, it’s Motion & Order Counties.  *There are 14 counties that are labeled Motion & Order. What this means is that the courts do not certify process servers in that county and the sheriff does not appoint process servers in that county. So, if we need to serve process in a Motion & Order county, then we need to be appointed on a case by case basis. Note, Subpoenas do not need a Motion & Order but Summonses do require one. We have templates at the ready for these counties which list our Servers’ names.  If a serve requires a M&O, we will let you know and send you our template to complete. It needs to be completed by the Attorney and e-filed to the case docket. You should also follow up with the Judge or JA to ensure the M&O gets executed quickly so we can begin our efforts.

Please note that M&O does not apply to serving foreign process in Florida.

Franchisee: Dallas

Let me start by saying Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones. As we are wrapping up what has been an unprecedented 2020, I am excited to announce our growth and opening of Accurate Serve Dallas. Our Dallas office is ready to handle any process serving needs that you and your office may have. We will be providing service locally throughout Dallas County as well as Statewide and Nationwide Service.

Our office is focused on providing timely service while keeping you up to date on all attempts and information for each job. We are always available for phone calls but much of our communication will come via email. Once we update a job, whether it is an attempt or the job has been completed, you will receive an email with the details of that attempt or job completed information. Many of our servers take advantage of the technology that we have by using our app on their phone to provide job details. This helps us to provide you with quicker updates and images of attempts or service when needed.

All jobs filed within the state of TX will be served in accordance with TX Statutes and procedures of service. As Accurate Serve continues to grow throughout the nation, our team also continues to expand our knowledge of Statues and Procedures from state to state. Our objective is to be your one stop shop for a process serving company. I should also mention that we have successfully served internationally as well, throughout many parts of Canada, Europe, Asia and South America.

If you are in need of service or just have a question, please email us at [email protected]. We look forward to working with you, creating new relationships and successfully serving your office.

Thank you,

Brandon Muscato

Routine service is within 4 business days. Rush Service is within 24 hours. Same Day Service is service that day. When sending your AS office docs for service, please let us know in the email (or website submission) what priority you require for service. Please note, if the court date is less than a week away, we will auto rush it BUT it helps if you draw our attention to the court date in your correspondence.

What Kind of Training Ft. Myers, FL Process Servers Go Through

Did you know that a Florida process server has to pass an exam before they can even apply for certification or registration? If they must pass an exam, it stands to reason that they would have to go through some type of training before being certified. Although the training that process servers receive is fairly short, it is highly effective and provides the details necessary to do their job. Here is what some of the training they go through entails.

Initial education about Florida Statutes

The Rules of Civil Procedure, which include rules about service of process, must be learned by process servers to ensure that they do not step on the rights of the people who they are serving. Process servers have many standards that must be followed for the service to be lawful and hold up in court. Otherwise, your case could get thrown out. This is so important that the statutes are taught in a very intensive two- to three-day crash course.

After passing the exam

Being able to pass an exam right after a three-day course really only ensures that the process server knows how to study and take tests. It takes more than two or three days to truly digest that much information. After passing the exam, new process servers should be encouraged to continue studying the materials given during the course so that they can continue to improve in their duties.

Continuing education

The rules about service of process do change on occasion. In fact, the sudden immersion in an online global society has brought up some very interesting and important questions about what can constitute legal notification of a case against you. (This is the reason parties to a case must be served.) Some jurisdictions are even allowing digital delivery of legal papers when the person cannot be physically found.

Our process servers are hand picked from the most trusted courses in Florida process service. Most of our servers can serve papers across jurisdictions, and they stay up to date on the latest rules and regulations. In addition, we are following all of the recommendations regarding safety during the COVID19 pandemic. Contact us today to get started.

Officially open for business as of October 2, 2020, we welcome to the AS team, Accurate Serve® of Atlanta. My office (Tampa Bay area) has already sent multiple papers to Accurate Serve® of Atlanta and all of them were served quickly and accurately, you know the Accurate Serve® way!!

The man behind the email and on the phone is new team member, James Pantell, but you can call him JP for short.  On a lighter note, JP joins several other Accurate Serve® team members whose first names start with J, like Josh Wright, Josh Kes and Jared Williams. Adding to that, we have 3 team members whose names start with B, Beau Charlet, Brennan Fogarty and Brandon Muscato. I know, I’m way off track but it’s fun to read about funny things like that, don’t you agree?

So JP went through Accurate Serve® franchise training July – Sep of this year. He has Servers all over the State of Georgia ready to serve your papers. If you are an attorney in Atlanta or GA, reach out to JP, he is the Man and will get the job done!!

If you are a FL attorney (or Denver or Detroit), keep sending your work to your local Owner/Operator.  Just know the next time we serve one of your papers in GA, we have upgraded the level of service you will be provided.

Tactics People Use to Avoid Service

Sometimes people will do amazing things to get out of being served. When someone is avoiding service, it means that they already know it’s coming. If the legal papers to be served are in a high-stakes divorce or a high dollar civil suit, you might get a runner.

These people think that the problem will just go away if they are not served. They don’t realize that there are alternative means of service available. In fact, some courts are even allowing some digital service via email or social media where the receipt upon opening can be verified. Still, it is best to get someone served by traditional means when available.

Some of the things that people will do to avoid service are just crazy. Here are a few examples. Continue reading

Process Serving, Recent Legislature Changes & Technological Advancements

In June 2019, Florida House Bill 91 was signed, sealed and delivered. One of the major changes in this Bill was the fact that process servers could now electronically sign their Returns of Service. This was a HUGE development. Prior to the signing of this Bill, only the Sheriff was allowed to electronically sign Returns, not private process servers (PPS).

Once this Bill was signed into effect, our software programmer went to work and built a feature into our software program and App which allowed Accurate Serve Process Servers to update jobs and sign Returns using their Smartphones. They could serve a paper and within minutes be able to sign the Return of Service (ROS). This sure does beat the old way of doing things which would consist of printing the Return, waiting for Server to report to the office to sign Return, then scan it, save it and email it.

This new development/advancement has been great for us here at Accurate Serve as well as our Clients. The quicker we can serve the paper and provide the ROS, then the happier our Clients will be. Well, what about an Affidavit of Service (AOS)? A notary can’t notarize a document when an electronic signature has been used, right? Well in June 2019, that was true. Fast forward 6 months, different story.

As of January 1, 2020, current Florida notaries have had the opportunity to add remote online notary (RON) duties to their current commission. In order to be approved, the following criteria must be met:

  • Complete a course
  • Obtain Bond
  • Obtain Errors & Omissions insurance
  • Select a RON Service Provider
  • Complete a form
  • Pay a Fee to the State

There are very specific duties that a RON Service Provider must undertake. The technology they utilize must meet requirements set forth in Chapter 117, Florida Statutes as well as Chapter 1N-7.001, Florida Administrative Code. Some duties include:

  • Facilitating 2-way video conferencing for online notary and Affiant (record video and store for 10 years)
  • Attach digital signatures/notary’s stamp and signature of Server

Well, just like building electronic signatures into our software program, our programmer stepped up to the cleanup spot this time and hit a grand slam. Our software program, Paper Tracker, applied to be a RON Service Provider in the State of Florida.  After that, the RON process was built into our software and after months of testing, it is now live for use. We have successfully electronically signed and notarized over a dozen Affidavits in our Tampa Bay offices this past week and now we are making the feature live in all 38 Accurate Serve locations in Florida.

When changes happen, we adjust. When advancements need to made, we get to work.  Bust most importantly, we serve papers and we serve them quickly and accurately. We pride ourselves in service of process. We are experts in the field and are committed to the industry.

Just to let you know, we opened an office in Denver, CO in July 2020. We open an office in Detroit, MI in September 2020. And we open an office in Atlanta, GA in October 2020.

We’re always working, we’re always open, and we are always doing our best to ensure your papers are served in a timely fashion and according to State Statutes.

*This includes jobs that may be on hold or waiting for new info.  There is no way to take those jobs out of the calculation.  So, if a job is placed on hold for 2 weeks, that’s 14 days on that job which factors in to this average. So, we’re even better than what the eyes see, LOL. Some papers get served same day, some next day and some take multiple attempts/addresses to effect service. All we do all day and every day is serve papers. We’re good at it and we love what we do. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to continue to serve your papers.

August Newsletter 2020

Message from the Founder

Lions, Tigers but Not Bears….Not Yet at Least

Accurate Serve® is over the moon excited to announce another office opening in yet another state!! Accurate Serve® of Detroit opens its doors THIS September!! Introducing new Team Member and Owner/Operator of the Detroit office, say hello to Erik Devlin. Erik has served in a different role with AS the past few years, no pun intended, because he is and has been an awesome process server the past few years!! Erik attended and graduated from Accurate Serve® corporate franchise training in August after working closely with and at multiple Accurate Serve® office locations in July and August.

After serving voluminous amounts of papers for the AS team, Erik saw the opportunity to own his own office and he seized it!!  Erik will be the 3rd process server working for Accurate Serve® who has taken the leap to become an owner of an Accurate Serve® office. The previous two Process Servers turned Owners, Brennan Fogarty and Brandon Muscato, have worked out well and we look forward to Erik growing within the organization too and becoming a solid team member for the Accurate Serve® family.

Warmest regards,
Beau Charlet

At Accurate Serve® Gainesville, we are always concerned about the health and safety of our clients, the people who we service, and our employees. This is even more important to us as we all work to navigate the “new normal” that exists during the middle of a global pandemic.

Accurate Serve® Gainesville continues to provide Contactless Service to our clients. All requests for service through AccurateServe® Gainesville may be completed via email, phone call, or US postal service. Our process servers wear PPE while delivering your important court documents, so that all parties can feel safe when they receive your information. Those served are not required to provide signatures; instead, our servers provide detailed descriptions when verifying service by using our process server app, so that procedures are touchless from start to finish. Accurate Serve® Gainesville will be here for you our clients, throughout the pandemic.

COVID numbers continue to fluctuate from county to county in our state, but scientists predict that they are expected to rise as students re-enter their classrooms and flu season approaches. Many K-12 learners in public, private and charter schools, as well as scholars at Santa Fe College and the University of Florida are returning to their respective campuses this fall, so we want to urge our clients, partners, and everyone in the Accurate Serve® family to stay safe. The influx of flu season is just around the corner, so please be sure to follow the CDC guidelines for safety and social distancing during this pandemic. Please stay safe!

How the Pandemic Is Affecting Service of Process

The pandemic is affecting all of our lives in a million unexpected ways, and service of process is no different.

A lot of people are laid off or working from home right now. Those same people are trying to limit their time out in public, doing shopping only once a week or getting everything delivered. That means that you are very likely able to get papers served in your case very quickly if the service is on an individual. Continue reading
