SERVICE OF PROCESS IN CALIFORNIA

California

Once formal notice has been given to the other party, the legal process has been said to have started. Service of the court papers means that the defendant is supplied with a copy of any paper filed with the court. Consequently, a third person [the server] delivers the paperwork so that the judge can make a permanent order or judgment.  The process server is required to carefully fill out and sign the Proof of Service detailing how service was done, on whom, where, and when and file it with the court clerk. A copy of this proof is provided to the plaintiff.
