Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

A process server is a legal professional who serves legal notices and documents to the concerned party. In most cases, the server will serve summons and subpoenas to clients and defendants. It is process server's responsibility to locate the person to be served and deliver the notice in-person. The Clerk of Court administers the Private Process Server Certification exam.

Pursuant to Arizona Revised Statutes §11-445 and Rule 4, Arizona Rules of Civil Procedure, individuals granted certification as a private process server are authorized to serve process for any court of the state anywhere within Arizona. The Arizona Supreme Court has adopted the Arizona Code of Judicial Administration, Section §7-204: Private Process Server, providing for the statewide certification of process servers.  Pursuant to this code section, the application, certification and discipline of private process servers is administered locally by the Superior Court in each county. The Administrative Code, Administrative Order, and updates regarding the Program, including a statewide list of certified process servers, are posted to the Arizona judicial department web page.
