What Is Process Serving in Australia?
Process Serving is the act of delivering legal documents to an individual or an institution required to; appear in court, reply to court re a summons or, engage in some type of legal action. Typically, process serving involves delivering a document/s to a person that is not expecting them and on occasion not understanding why they are receiving them.
