Do You Need Process Service Philippines?
Process service Philippines gives legal notice to a person or business, anywhere in the Philippines. This allows a person or business to respond to the proceeding before the court, body, or other tribunal. In legal terms, process service establishes a court’s jurisdiction over an individual for a specific legal matter. Typically, this is used by small claims, family, or civil courts, for debt collection, family/child support matters, and other legal matters. Furthermore, in laymen’s terms, it also called a ‘summons’. Zele process server Philippines can assist you to serve your legal documents to anyone anywhere in the Philippines or SE Asia.

Types of Process Service Philippines
Each legal jurisdiction has its own rules for process service. Typically, a summons and related documents are served upon the defendant personally. In some cases, documents are served upon another person of suitable age and discretion at the person’s residence or place of business or employment. Furthermore, process service is effected through the mail as in some small claims court procedures.
In other countries, such as many in Europe and Japan, process service is performed by a court bailiff, either in person or by mail. In exceptional cases, other forms of service is authorized by procedural rules or court order. This is used for process service by publication when an individual is not located in a particular jurisdiction. Many countries such as the Philippines have their own rules.
When the service is on a defendant who resides in a country outside the jurisdiction of the court, normally the process server Philippines must comply with special procedures prescribed under the Hague Service Convention. As long as the recipient’s country is a signatory. Furthermore, some jurisdictions require that the documents served to be visible. Others require GPS or other electronic tracking of delivery, and some don’t allow for Sunday or other holiday delivery.
One type of service is called “substituted service”. This legal process of service is when the documents are left with an adult resident of the named party at the target’s home, or with a management level employee at their place of business. There are also circumstances when posting in a prominent place (followed up by a certified mail copy) is an accepted method of service. This is legal in many countries.
For process service Philippines companies, normally the legal representative as per their business registration is served in place of any company owner or director.

We also provide an Affidavit of Service, also called a Proof of Service (AOS/POS). This is a signed document provided to you by the Zele process server Philippines upon completion of serving your documents. Proof of Service states when, where, and who was served. There are a number of other affidavits that can be provided to you as a client. For instance, an Affidavit of Due Diligence may be provided if the person to be served cannot be located. If your jurisdiction does not have a standard form, then we can provide a legal affidavit instead.
What If The Person To Serve Cannot Be Found
In most cases, the court will continue without the subject being served, as long as there is evidence to support actual process service attempts. Evidence is brought forth without a rebuttal or defense from you and a judgment is issued. For other situations, Zele Philippines also offers Person Finder service to locate anyone in the Philippines or SE Asia. This may take some time to locate, and we can confirm if the person is still in the Philippines or left the country with our Immigration Investigation service.
