As with any profession, if you want to fully understand their concept and understand the benefits they provide; you must first know a little about their history. Many people may not remember from government class in high school that “due process” is a right granted to us in the Constitution. Found in the 5 and 6 amendments, the law states that every United States citizen has the right to due process. This simply means that if you are being summoned to court, you have a right to be informed.
There was a time when local and county sheriffs had the duty of letting people know they were being served. It was a monumental task that became nearly impossible to achieve as cities grew and populations expanded. Process serving took these police officers away from their primary responsibility, which was to serve and protect the citizens of their area. It became obvious that a solution had to be found. Soon the process server profession was born. If you live in the Simi Valleyprocessserving jurisdiction, one of these process servers will be delivering papers to you when the need arises.
