Movies and television tend to sensationalize and dramatize the entire process of handing in a legal notice, and if nothing else, it only causes a lot of confusion for us, so this is why we are going to try to clear out the process a little so that you do not end up dealing with issues in case you ever have to hand in a legal notice to someone later on.
Once you have decided to take legal action against any party over any kind of offense, then you will first need to send in a legal notice to the party. This legal notice, known as a service of due process is handled by service processors. It is essentially their job to ensure that the legal “heads up” is given to the other party because this is the constitutional right of every individual under the state. The service processors, after handing in the documents, will then end up giving you an affidavit of service, this serves as evidence that the service of due process was given to the other party in due time. In case you happen to be in need of a service processor, then you can look into the services of Superior Process Services and see if they can help you out.
This allows the other party to collect their bearings and be able to respond appropriately, and once a court summons has been given, then you and your case holds up in a court of law, and the other party is legally required to show up to court on the given date or else they will be held legally accountable for missing a court hearing on purpose when they were already given a heads up beforehand. This allows you to have an advantage in court as well later on.
