Process Serving London

Process Serving

Serving court papers can be an essential part of initiating legal proceedings. If you are seeking a trustworthy and experienced professional for your process serving needs, then National Private Investigators can help.


What is Process Serving?

Process serving is, in simple terms, the act of serving legal documents to an individual or organisation. This is usually carried out at the start of a case, in order to make the other party aware or to trigger a legal process (such as divorce).

Because of the sensitive and complex nature of legal proceedings, it is important to ensure that documents are served correctly. As such, a qualified process server can help you to avoid any of the common pitfalls you might encounter.

Process serving is not as easy as delivering documents. A process server is an experienced professional who understands the ins and outs of the law. Process servers will know about any legislative changes that could impact their work and your process, keeping you from missing any small details. They have the knowledge you need on your side during this difficult time.

Why you need a process server

There are rules and regulations in place that might hinder you if you wish to serve legal documents yourself. Incorrectly served papers can be invalidated, causing your case to stall.

Even aside from legal requirements and knowledge, it is not always suitable for an individual to act as a process server. In some cases, you may find that serving legal documents is dangerous for you if the other party is confrontational or violent. In situations where you may need to evict tenants from a property, it could even be impossible to gain access and confirm delivery.

You may also find it challenging to locate an individual if they choose to hide from you – making a skilled process server and private investigator a necessity.


Professional and personal legal proceedings

A process server can be used in a number of different situations where legal documents need to be delivered. For example, in your professional life you may need to serve statutory demands, bankruptcy notices, or have insolvency documents delivered. A process server can also be used to deliver eviction notices to tenants, or to serve witness summons.

Serving legal papers can be even more difficult if you are dealing with an interpersonal case. You may need to enlist the help of a process server in order to deliver documents if you are going through a divorce, or if you are engaged in a custody case with a former partner. A process server can also assist if you need to issue a non-molestation order or injunction.

Though each situation is unique, our experienced process servers will be able to ensure your papers are served efficiently and successfully. If in doubt, get in touch to find out how our process servers can assist you.

Don't Let Your Suspicions Go Unanswered Any Longer.

Our process serving approach

We employ a scrupulous process to ensure the successful service of legal documents. Our experienced process servers adhere to strict legal guidelines, making multiple attempts at various times throughout the day to reach the intended recipient.

In situations where direct service is not possible, we explore alternative options, such as serving documents at the recipient’s workplace or to a resident over 18 years of age at their home address. We document every attempt and provide detailed reports, including photographic evidence where necessary, to validate the service.


In the event that our initial attempts are unsuccessful, we offer a comprehensive Trace and Serve service, utilising our investigative expertise to locate the recipient and complete the service.

We maintain open communication with our clients throughout the process, keeping you informed of progress and any challenges encountered. We believe in transparency and will provide a detailed breakdown of our fees upfront, with no hidden costs.

Proof of process serving

When your process has been served, we will provide you with documentation for your peace of mind. This will include a certificate of service or affidavit to show that we have served your documents. Due to our independence from your legal case, you will be able to use our proof of delivery as evidence going forward. This can be necessary if the other party fails to comply with a court summons.

You can also expect to receive confirmation from NPI so you know who your process server is and what time they completed delivery. We will outline any attempts made to fully confirm the identity of the other party, as well as their response to having the process served.

This can give you an understanding of any further steps you may need to take — especially in cases where we may have encountered a negative or violent reaction.
