Waiting for documents from the process server

Finally the  long wait is over! After a legal battle for almost a year ,  the Regional Trial Court finally issued a court in our favor .  The National Grid Corporation is ordered to release the payment for expropriation of the portion of our land which was used by   NGCP’s    new line installation and tower erection . Representing the Heirs of our family,  I have been going  to and fro the court attending court proceedings  and complying necessary  documents.  The case which supposed to be completed in 3 months time extended to  9 months due to some complications of papers. 

Now,   two weeks had passed but  I  was not yet able to receive the  court order from the  process server.   The court told me it must have been due to the holidays and the typhoon that struck our city.  How I  wish  the server  do their work as quickly as the California process server.   They file and  serve legal process extremely fast and mostly paperless, with mobile devices, 2-D barcodes, GPS and photos.  Client  get logistics, data, images and a virtual back office wrapped up in every file .  They have  400 employees and 27 software engineers working on smarter solutions for law firms and legal departments.

The term “process server”  is one that  those outside of the legal industry probably have little to no knowledge  but those in the legal industry know all about  and. There are a lot of false impression about what they actually do and what is required of them on a daily basis. It was only when I was involve in our case with National Grid Corporation that I was able to know the term.


What is a process server? They are involved in a variety of tasks such as filing court papers, serving legal documents and document retrieval. Their main task is to deliver legal documents to a defendant or a person involved in a court case. After serving the legal documents, servers must present tangible evidence that the legal papers were served. The evidence that is presented is called an affidavit of service or proof of service, which should  be notarized and given to the individual or company who requested the papers to be served.
