Process Service

Contact: 228-865-4137

Process is any means used by a court to exercise its jurisdiction over a person or specific property. Different courts require different forms of process.

For example:

  • Garnishments are served by writ
  • Summons are served by warrants
  • Judgments are served by replevin
  • Court orders are served by a writ of habeas corpus

Process servers will receive documents ready for service and log these documents into a docket book. Once executed, they will make return of the process to the appropriate court agency. This return certifies that service has been made and the document properly delivered.
