Sometimes when you need papers to be served, the individual cannot be found at home. Whether the person has moved and you don’t have a current address, or if they are avoiding service by not being at home or answering the door, it might become necessary to serve the papers somewhere else at another time. The obvious place to find someone is at their place of employment. But can someone be served at work?
Rules about Serving Papers
There are few hard rules about where papers can and cannot be served. Papers can be served almost anywhere that the individual to be served can be found. This means that you can even have someone served while they are at a regularly scheduled meeting or event.

If you have a legal case that you have filed, it is likely that you need to have papers served for the case to move forward.

Anytime you have a court case, you will likely need a process server. It may seem as though this hoop thrown up by the courts is a pain that you don’t want to deal with, but a private process server is an important part of the court process.
