Should I Hire a Registered Process Server Lance Casey & Associates or the Sacramento County Sheriff Department to Serve My Lawsuit Papers?
Most people will only file a small claim lawsuit or any type of lawsuit for that matter, once in their lifetime. Many people don’t know at the onset that court documents must be served on the opposing party (more commonly known as the defendant or respondent) named in their case. Service of Process on the defendant is MANDATORY in all courts in the United States of America. Many people don’t know this until they reach the Clerk’s window at the court house. Many people ask the clerk, “How do I get my documents served.” In Sacramento, California, the Clerk’s response is always “The Sacramento County Sheriff Civil Division can serve your documents.” Or “Go to the Sheriff’s Department Civil Division.”
What the Clerk doesn’t say to the unsuspecting plaintiff (the person filing a lawsuit) is that the Sheriff’s office has much higher priorities that serving court documents. Process serving is more than likely the absolute lowest priority of the Sheriff’s Department. The Sheriff of any county or city has a first priority of addressing crime ie; keeping the people who live, work and visit their jurisdiction safe from unsavory and criminal elements. Because process serving is not the first priority, or even close to the first priority of any Sheriff’s Department, when a plaintiff forks over hard earned cash ($40. I charge $50 for small claim process service) to the Sheriff’s Department to serve their court documents they should be told up front, “We may, or may not get this served for you. We will absolutely not attempt to serve your documents before 8:00 am nor after 5:00 pm, nor on weekends or holidays.” I serve 24/7. Most plaintiffs think that the Sheriff will show up to serve documents wearing the stylish Sheriff’s department uniform, maybe throw an ice cold scare into the defendant, that will ultimately guarantee their document get served. I wish you could see me sadly shaking my head….. not so. The Sheriff’s Department can no more guarantee service than anyone else who takes it upon themselves to serve process.
The Sacramento County Sheriff can’t arrest someone for evading service. In my experience, the Sheriff doesn’t expend a great deal of energy getting a serve competed. Here in Sacramento, they go out once, the initial attempt. If they can get it served, then great, if not, you may not be notified until your court date. Well, it leaves the plaintiff out of whatever money spend paying the Sheriff to serve their documents and having to reschedule their court date as well as dipping into their cash again to pay a Registered Process Server to get their documents served.
