Are you looking for a fast Process Server in Bakersfield to serve your Legal Documents? You’ve come to the right place.
Zekes Justice League Services takes pride in each service to build lasting relationships with my clients. Whether you have one service, or you’re a Law Firm that needs many documents to be served, I value each and every Service.
Zekes Justice League Services is a local process service company that serves Bakersfield California and all surrounding communities in Kern County and also serve other areas beyond Kern County.
It is my mission to serve your important documents in the most time and cost effective manner.
WHAT CAN A PROCESS SERVER DO OR NOT DO?
A process server’s main job is to deliver legal documents to an individual or party named in the action. The purpose of process service is to place the party on notice that an action has begun or that a relevant document has been filed in the case.
Some documents in a legal action must be served in a specific manner. . For example, a document may require that the process server personally serves the individual. Personal service is generally accomplished by identifying the person and handing the person the document.
Process Servers Have Permission to Serve you at Work?
In short, yes, process servers can legally serve employees and employers at their place of work. Process Servers don't need to get your permission to deliver that service. Most people find receiving services to be embarrassing due to it usually being about bad news.
As a Process Server, I will only make an attempt to serve someone at work as a last resort. I have no interest in seeing harm come to them, but only to hand off papers. The longer it takes for them to get papers, the worse legal issues you will typically have. If I’m unable to hand off the papers at your work, the court may approve to publish their service in a newspaper or online - that’s much more embarrassing for them for everyone to see.
Breaking and Entering is Illegal:
Most process servers begin personal service by attempting to serve the person at their home. In most cases, the process server is not trespassing unless the process server unlocks a locked gate.
Let you know that I'm not affiliated with the Kern County Sheriffs Department or any Law Enforcement Agency. But If you would rather use the local Law Enforcement Agency to handle and to serve your legal documents, you have the right to do that.
. But if you do decide to use and hire my services, I'll travel to your home, your place of business or meet you at a local coffee shop near you.
For a nominal fee, I'll travel to Delano, McFarland, Tehachapi, Frazier Park, Taft or Tehachapi.

Evader: An "evasive defendant" is an individual or entity that wilfully behaves in a way that will hinder the ability of the process server to serve process on that individual or entity easily or in a timely manner.

A process agent is a representative upon whom court papers may be served. In the US, the role is generally a requirement of US State law and is known as a registered agent, a resident agent or statutory agent. However, process agents are utilized in the US by truck drivers, brokers or freight forwarders for similar purposes. Process agents that provide nationwide coverage for motor carriers are commonly referred to as blanket agents.
