PROCESS SERVICE

     Service of process is the procedure by which a party to a lawsuit gives an appropriate notice of initial legal action to another party (such as a defendant), court, or administrative body in an effort to exercise jurisdiction over that person so as to enable that person to respond to the proceeding before the court, body, or other tribunal.

     Once service of process has been effected, the responsible officer or process server must typically file a return of service or proof of service or affidavit of service with the court (or convey one to the plaintiff to file with the court). The return of service indicates the time and place at which service was effected, the person served, and any additional information needed to establish that service was properly made. It is signed by the process server, and operates as prima facie evidence that service of process was effectively made.

     Electric City Process Service is more than equipped to handle all of your process service needs.  We have handled over 100,000 assignments since 1990 and have covered mainly New York State and recently the United States.  Our clients range from large law firms to other process serving companies to a regular person that simply need papers served.

     For your convenience, and for the sake of transparency, we have complied a chart of our rates so that you will have a clear understanding of how much it would cost for process service.
