By: Undisputed Legal/Process Service Department
Alaska has extensive regulation of private process servers. Private process servers are licensed by the Alaska State Department of Public Safety . See e.g., Alaska R. Civ. P.(c); 13 Alaska Admin. Code § 67.010. The Department has issued detailed regulations, which include an examination. 13 Alaska Admin. Code § 67.100.
The Department requires a passing grade of at least 80%. The test contains 50 questions, 25 multiple choice and 25 True or False. The Department makes available a study guide, which we requested but never received.
Alaska regulations also govern qualifications of process servers, 13 Alaska Admin. Code § 67.020; set out standards of professional conduct, § 67.180; impose bond requirements on process servers and process service firms, § 67.920; and require publication of process server fees and that such fees be “reasonable,” 67.220.
