Serbia Process Service

Serbia 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.

Serbia PROCESS SERVERs

Serbia process servers serve civil and commercial matters pursuant to the Hague Service Convention, 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.

Method of Service

In accordance with the Civil Procedure Act, the incoming requests are executed as follows:

The party is summoned by the Court for the purpose of service of documents.  If the party does not appear before the Court, the document is sent to the party through the Post.

Translation Requirements

The Republic of Serbia requires documents, which are to be served under Article 5(1), to be in - or translated into - the official language of the Republic of Serbia.  Click here to read all the declarations made by the Republic of Serbia under the Service Convention.
