How to send your documents for service?

You may upload documents directly on our site or you can email them to the address below:

serviceofprocess@oneknocklegal.com 

If your case requires serving the original documents please call to make arrangements for pickup and/or mailing originals to us. In most cases we find that serving copies of the originals are sufficient for the courts.


Is there a Refund Policy?

Refund Policy - There is no refund once service has been attempted on your documents. If you decide that you've picked the wrong service. We will adjust your documents to be served during the correct time frame. If service has already been attempted you must pay the fee for that time frame.

Are there any Guarantees for Service?

No Guarantees: There are no guarantees that your documents will be served or served to the listed individual or business. Many individuals and businesses avoid receiving service of process. However, you can rest assure that we will conduct the highest level of due diligence to get your documents served. No Process Serving Company can guarantee successful service in every case. If they make this claim find another company fast. It is impossible to guarantee that your documents will be served in every case.

How do I show proof that my documents were served?

Upon completion of service or non-service we will prepare an affidavit that is required to be filed with the court in the jurisdiction of the case. You will received this document shortly after service has been completed. It is YOUR responsibility to file the affidavit with the proper court.

Along with the affidavit you will receive photos of where the service took place or was attempted. These photos should be filed along with the affidavit to show proof of the process server's presence on noted time and date.

NO Trespassing Rules

No Trespassing:  Our Process Servers will abide by all "No Trespassing" signage postage on any property. If a Process Server sees any signs posted they will take a picture of the sign on the property to submit along with findings. Exception: If the Process Server is able to gain the attention and permission of the residents or owner to enter the property they will attempt service of your documents.

We do not perform the following:
  • Jump fences to enter restricted areas
  • Break into locked yards 
  • Enter any locked or restricted areas
  • Enter a property with "No Trespassing" sign without permission from owner or resident
  • Enter the homes of persons to be served.
  • Imitate any level of law enforcement.
  • Touch mailboxes

The safety of our process servers are very important. We will take all precautions to prevent them from harm or wrongful accusations of breaking the law. Process Servers are civilians at all times. They are not law enforcement.
