MALTA PROCESS SERVICE
Process service, also known as "service of process,” is the procedure employed to give appropriate notice of initial legal action to another party (such as a defendant), court, or administrative body in an effort to exercise jurisdiction over that person so as to enable that person to respond to the proceeding before the court, body, or other tribunals. Notice is furnished by delivering a set of court documents (called "process") to the person to be served, process service is performed by a process server.
MALTA PROCESS SERVERS
Malta process servers serve civil and commercial matters pursuant to the Hague Service Convention, which is a multilateral treaty adopted in Hague, Netherlands on November 15, 1965, by member states of the Hague Conference on Private International Law. It came into existence to give litigants a reliable and efﬁcient means of serving the documents on parties living, operating, or based in another country. The provisions of the convention apply to the service of process in civil and commercial matters but not criminal matters. Also, the Convention shall not apply if the address of the person to be served with the document is not known.
METHODS OF SERVICE
Article 7 of Chapter 443 of the Laws of Malta:
Where Malta is the State addressed for the purposes of Article 5 of The Hague Convention of 1965, the central authority shall cause the document to be served by attaching the document to a judicial letter filed in the Registry of the Civil Court, First Hall, to be served on the person addressed together with such document, and such judicial letter and accompanying documents shall be served in accordance with the methods prescribed in
(a) article 187(1), (2), (4) or (7) of the Code of Organization and Civil Procedure, as the circumstances of the case may require: Provided that the reference to curators appointed by the court in the said article 187(7) shall not apply; or
(b) article 187(8) of the Code of Organization and Civil Procedure:
Provided that the proviso to the said article 187(8) shall not apply, as the central authority may deem fit to specify in the circumstances of each case.
Pursuant to Article 5(3) of the Convention, Malta will require the documents to be written in, or translated into, the English or Maltese language
The Hague Service Convention established a more simpliﬁed means for parties to effect service in other contracting states. Under the convention, each contracting state is required to designate a central authority to accept incoming requests for service. A judicial ofﬁcer who is competent to serve the process in the state of origin is permitted to send a request for service directly to the central authority of the state where service is to be made. Upon receiving the request, the central authority in the receiving state arranges for service in a manner permitted within the receiving state, typically through a local court. Once service is effected, the central authority sends a certiﬁcate of service to the judicial ofﬁcer who made the request.
