WE SERVE OGDEN
AND ALL OF
AND ALL OF
LEGAL PROCESS SERVICE IN OGDEN, UTAH
Lawsuits and other official matters in the Ogden area can require legal process service, and Wasatch Constables are the best men and women for the job. In addition to service of process for private clients, we are the corporate entity for Salt Lake County and South Ogden City Constable Matt Jennings. That means our staff is comprised of sworn peace officers who have completed extensive law enforcement training with the state to become fully certified.
This high level of training and official involvement with the city of Ogden, Utah, mean that each process server we employ is courteous, professional, and fully informed of all the legal requirements involved in getting your court filings to the right person on time. Our officers are also skilled at finding and dealing with the criminal element and making arrests, so we have the knowledge and experience to locate almost anyone without exacerbating conflict or adding fire to the fuel of a potentially violent situation.
CIVIL PROCESS SERVICE TO KEEP YOUR LEGAL CASE ON TRACK
The majority of process service documents we deliver come in relation to civil court. In Ogden, many cases go through Utah’s Second District Court located downtown at 2525 Grant Avenue. These can include divorces, child custody and support cases, adoption and probate (wills and estates of the deceased), criminal matters and civil lawsuits. The rules vary widely for process service in each type of case, so we strongly recommend that you work with a qualified attorney to determine the correct documents to serve and the timeframe in which to serve them. If you miss legal deadlines for process service, you could automatically forfeit your lawsuit.
Process service can also be necessary in small claims cases. In Ogden and most surrounding cities, you can file these cases for things like past due rent, unpaid bills and failure to repay small loans, and disputes with a contractor in the relevant city’s justice court. In these cases, it is usually necessary for the plaintiff to hire a process server to transmit the affidavit and summons to the defendant, and this legal process service must be done within 30 days of filing the lawsuit. Then, according to the Utah Rules of Small Claims Procedure, each party must continue process serving all legal documents with the other party by first class mail and must file proof of the mailing to the courts within 10 days.
In addition to civil process service for small claims and district courts, Wasatch Constables provide process service for criminal prosecutors and can complete evictions, arrests and property seizure, also known as executions. Furthermore, the trained officers provide skip tracing services in order to locate anyone who has “skipped out” of town or who is trying to avoid legal process service in other ways.
