Highly impressed!
We had been trying to get someone served in New Mexico with a Contempt action for several months, but due to Covid-19, the post office was not hand delivering certified mail. ABC Legal had him served within a week! I am highly impressed with their service and would definitely recommend them to other attorneys/paralegals!

Technology has taken ABC to the top of its game.
I don't have the opportunity to use their services as much with my current position but the 2 or 3 serves I have sent for, one out of state and the other rural Mason County were executed within 24 hours. That's awesome and the online service and website interaction, also excellent!

Accommodating, professional, and pleasant.
I always like to call locations first before paying for stuff through a website. They were very accommodating, professional, and pleasant to work with. The process of uploading information and documents was very easy. The documents were served within a timely manner and I received my proof of service timely as well. Thanks ABC Legal Services!

Placing an Order

Order FAQ

  • How much does service of process cost?
    Price depends on geography. Standard service of process typically ranges from $50 to $160. Remote locations tend to be more expensive. Cities and urban areas can be less. ABC Legal charges per address, entity, and the number of cases being served.
  • I am serving two defendants at the same address. What does that cost?
    We charge per defendant, per address, and per case. So, each party will be priced the same.
  • How do I know if you serve in a particular area?
    We serve documents across the United States. To find pricing for your area, simply go to  https://secure.abclegal.com/abc/customer/order
  • I need to serve someone, but don’t know their address. Can you find them for me?
    Locating an individual, by law, requires “permissible purpose”. Therefore, we can only perform a skip trace for law firms or those who have retained a licensed attorney.  Explore our skip trace options here.
  • How do I create an account with you?
    An account is created when you place your first order on our website. If you are looking to place 100+ orders per month, you may prefer a billable account. Talk with a service of process expert to learn more.
  • I need someone served on a military base or in a prison/jail. Do you do that?
    This depends on the base or jail/prison. Some allow process servers in, others do not. Some have specific requirements such as making an appointment with a base escort. Please check with the military base/jail directly to confirm.
  • I need server names for my Motion and Order. How do I get those?
    Please add this request in the “Additional Instruction” field when placing your order on our website. When ABC Legal is reviewing your order, we will provide you with the name of the servers that cover the address/region you are requesting.

International FAQ

  • I need to serve documents under the Hague Convention. Do you do that?
    Yes, absolutely. To place an order for Hague Service, here’s a link to our International page. https://www.abclegal.com/international/hague-service-convention
  • Do you serve outside the US?
    In most cases, yes. Please reach out to our International team via email to internationalinfo@abclegal.com to find out if we can serve where you need.
  • Why is my order showing Canceled?
    Often, this happens because we are waiting for confirmation from you regarding whether we are to use electronic copies for service or if we are to wait for court-issued documents from your country’s Ministry of Justice.
  • I need an update on my International order. Who can help?
    For updates on International service of process, email internationalinfo@abclegal.com.

Troubleshooting Orders

Order Related Issues FAQ

  • What are your office hours?
    Our office hours are 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM, M-F, Pacific time.
  • Can I talk to the process server? I need to give them specific instructions about this service.
    Please add specific instructions in the “Additional Information” field when placing your order. You can also add this information later on the order detail page at abclegal.com. 
  • I just got an email saying the service address is bad or invalid. I know this person lives/works there.
    1.  This doesn’t always mean that the defendant doesn’t live or work at the address provided. Sometimes subjects are actively evading service.
    2. There could be a typo somewhere in the address.
    3.  Your documents may have expired due to a court deadline. 
  • I see service is complete. Where’s my proof of service?
    Proofs are automatically generated and sent to process servers upon completion of service. Many are e-signed instantly right in our mobile app. Proofs also appear instantly on your Dashboard for review. Some courts allow for electronic signature while some require wet ink originals and even notaries. Wet ink and notaries delay proof completion. 
  • The court needs a very specific proof filled out. How do I get that to the process server?
    To have the server fill out your specific proof, please upload it with the documents to be served and note that a specific proof needs to be filled out in the "Additional Information" field when placing your order.

  • How do I send ABC Legal my documents?
    When you place your order, you will be asked to upload your documents.

    File size is limited to 25 MB. Up to 10 PDFs can be submitted per order. A surcharge of 25 cents per page will apply for each page over 100.
