A Day in the Life of a Certified Process Server

Certified process servers have a specific role that can be divided up into smaller tasks. According to the video above, a typical day for a certified process server involves much more than simply delivering papers to notify parties of their involvement in the courts. While a large portion of these professionals spend their days picking up court papers and serving them to the appropriate individuals or entities, they may also spend a lot of time completing documentation, communicating with the courts, and preparing papers to deliver to recipients.

As with any professional, a certified process server may work on professional development tasks such as attending conferences, completing workshops, and earning educational credits to advance in their field while expanding their skill set.

It’s not unusual for court process servers to conduct other administrative and clerical tasks if they work in an office setting. If they are part-time, they might also work another kind of job. While court process servers have similar jobs, the expected duties of these positions may vary between courts and jurisdictions. A rural court process serving professional might have a different experience than one who works in a major city, as well. Although the job is simple, working with people and courts can add complexity to an otherwise straightforward line of work.
