I couldn't believe how easy it was to request for personal service out of our usual area. The website was easy to use and the subpoena took no time at all to download or for service to be completed! Thank you ABC Legal.

This was my first experience using ABC Legal Services. I needed a subpoena served as soon as possible on an out of state witness. ABC Legal served the subpoena the same day I placed the order. I also loved the real time updates via text/email. I will absolutely use ABC Legal Services again for service of process needs.

ABC Legal made things very easy for me to get an out-of-state Subpoena served with same day service. They were always very nice to answer my questions and even help me locate a pleading that had gone missing with the Court. I will definitely use them again!

FAQ for Serving Subpoenas

What is a subpoena?

A subpoena is a legal document issued by a court or an authorized individual that commands a person to produce documents, testify as a witness, or take some other action related to a legal proceeding. It is a crucial tool in gathering evidence and ensuring that all parties involved in a case have access to necessary information.

How do you serve a subpoena?

Serving a subpoena involves delivering the document to the person or entity named in the subpoena. This is typically done through a professional process server, like ABC Legal. The process server serving the subpoena must ensure that it is delivered to the correct individual or entity.

How is a subpoena legally served?

A subpoena is legally served by following the specific rules and procedures established by the jurisdiction's laws and court rules. This often includes delivering the subpoena in person to the recipient or, in some cases, through certified mail or another authorized method. It's crucial to adhere to the legal requirements for proper service to ensure the subpoena is valid.

How far in advance must a subpoena be served?

The timing for serving a subpoena can vary depending on local laws and court rules. In many jurisdictions, subpoenas must be served a reasonable amount of time before the scheduled court appearance or deposition. This period typically ranges from a few days to a few weeks. It's essential to consult local rules or seek legal advice to determine the specific timing requirements in your jurisdiction.

How do you subpoena someone?

a. Draft a subpoena: Create a subpoena document that includes the recipient's name, the information or documents you need, and the date, time, and location of the deposition or court appearance.

b. File with the court: In some cases, you may need to file the subpoena with the court clerk before serving it.

c. Serve the subpoena: Ensure the subpoena is properly served to the individual or entity named in the document.

d. Pay fees if required: Some jurisdictions may require payment of fees associated with serving a subpoena.

Does a subpoena have to be served in person?

In most cases, a subpoena is served in person by a process server or authorized individual. However, rules can vary by jurisdiction. Some jurisdictions may allow service by certified mail or other authorized methods, but these options must meet specific legal requirements to be valid.

Can a subpoena be served by mail?

In some jurisdictions, yes, a subpoena can be served by mail, typically through certified mail with a return receipt requested. However, it's crucial to check the specific requirements in your jurisdiction to ensure compliance with the law. Additionally, serving a subpoena by mail may have limitations, and it may not be suitable for all situations. Consult with legal counsel for guidance on the best method of service in your case.
