Here is an example of federal service agreement legislation: In some jurisdictions, anyone serving more than a certain number of assignments per year must be licensed. Laws typically provide for fines or jail time for a dispute server that does not obtain the required license. A court will not dismiss cases commenced with service through an unlicensed litigation server. A service contract is different from a bond. A service contract binds both parties to the agreement, while the commitment is unilateral and binds only the employee to the agreement. If the accused person is a child or a person incapable of managing his or her own legal affairs, service may be made on a parent, guardian or other person responsible for the custody or affairs of the defendant. The applicant may ask the court to appoint an appropriate person in case of doubt. A succession may be sued by service of the debt on an executor or administrator. The applicant may ask the court to appoint such a person if he or she has not yet been appointed.

If service itself is the basis of the court`s jurisdiction over the defendant, service must normally take place within the State. In the case of lower courts, service may take place in the district where the court is located. Courts of first instance of general jurisdiction generally allow service anywhere in the state. Service of a claim in federal district court may take place anywhere in the state where the court sits or, for some parties, at any location in the United States within one hundred miles of the courthouse.

Three basic methods are used for process delivery: (1) actual or personal delivery, (2) replaced service, and (3) delivery by publication. Although any method is legally acceptable, personal service is preferable because it is the most effective means of service and it is difficult for the defendant to challenge its legality. Personal service means handing over the papers to the right person. Traditionally, personal service has been the only method of service permitted by law, as it was the most appropriate means of informing the defendant of the proceedings. Anyone serving the case must file an affidavit of service with the court, detailing the service of documents.

These are called long-sleeved laws. They cite factors other than the physical presence of the defendant in the state that provide sufficient justification for the court to exercise jurisdiction over the defendant, such as doing business in the state or having a car accident in the state. If one of these factors is present, the potential defendant may be served with court proceedings outside the State, since service itself is not the basis of the court`s jurisdiction.
