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. 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 service must comply with special procedures prescribed under the Hague Service Convention if 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.
For process service Philippines companies, normally the legal representative as per their business registration is served in place of any company owner or director.
