What Kind of Papers Does a Process Server Serve?

In legal cases, all parties who must appear in court or provide testimony must receive adequate, appropriate notification of this requirement. Process servers offer notification to case parties by serving them process, or court documents. Process servers may deliver a variety of court papers, including summonses, complaints, subpoenas, and writs.


A summons is a legal notice that informs a person who has been sued of the date, time, and location where he or she will be required to appear in court to present his or her defense. Avoiding or ignoring a summons may lead to legal consequences.

If the process server is unable to serve the original process successfully, they may then attempt to deliver an alias summons or pluries summons. No matter the type, defendants, and witnesses who receive a summons must comply.


Complaints clarify the allegations made by the plaintiff against the defendant in greater detail. The complaint contains information on what the plaintiff believes he is owed, as well as all of the witnesses who will be called to testify. The complaint is generally given with the summons to court.


Subpoenas are designed for individuals who have seen, heard, or know something that can shed light on the case’s understanding by a court and jury. When you are required to appear in court pursuant to a subpoena, it is not optional. Only very limited circumstances allow a person to refuse to testify in a court case. You might face hefty fines or imprisonment if you disregard a subpoena.


A writ is an order issued by a court and authorized by a judge of that court. Writs are very prevalent and may be used in a variety of circumstances. We provide the following writs at Accurate Serve® in Ft. Myers:
