Michelle exceeded my expectations, she truly went above and beyond to help me with serving my estranged husband with divorce papers. Diligent Process Services is absolutely amazing and I highly recommend them. Thank you, Michelle!! 5 stars!!!! Wish I could give more."

-Angel L. Weismann, Whiteman Osterman & Hanna LLP
"Diligent Process Services Inc. exceeded our expectations in the Process Serving business. Our experience with the Process Server, Michelle, was that of a highly respectful and courteous professional. Our law office is located in the State of Rhode Island and we were in need of serving legal papers to a Defendant in the Palm Beach County area. I found the business name through Serve Now's website as we were not familiar with any Process Server's in Florida. I was immediately contacted after leaving a message and once I spoke with Michelle, I knew I went to the right person. She served our legal papers in no time and accomplished the task with plenty of time to spare. The fee was reasonable and affordable. I recommend Diligent Process Services Inc. with confidence in knowing that Michelle will get the job done no matter what the circumstances and she will do it with honesty and integrity. Make your life easier and use Diligent Process Services Inc. They are the best in the business!"
-Jackie LaChapelle, Legal Assistant
“We needed to serve papers from California in the Palm Beach area of Florida and used the ServeNow website to find a local process server. Michelle responded quickly, offered very reasonable rates, and promised diligent service. We were not disappointed! Within one day after sending her the set of papers via email, Michelle was able to complete the service and provided us with a detailed explanation of the actual process, considering the person to be served refused to come to the door, although the person was visible through the windows. We had previously had the local Sheriff’s Office serve the same papers; however, there were delays and they didn’t get served in time for an earlier court date; where Michelle was able to do the same service in just one day. We would highly recommend Michelle and Diligent Process Services, Inc. to anyone needing these services in the Palm Beach area."
-Alan W. (Pro Se)
"Wanted to share how satisfied I am with Diligent Process Services in serving a three days notice to my tenant this week. They were very competitive and went above and beyond my expectations for customer service. Firstly they answered all my question in a very timely and detailed manner. Secondly, Michelle even found and brought to my attention an error that I made on the date in the three days notice which could have been an issue if I had to pursue the eviction. Finally, Michelle even sent me pictures of the posted notice to make me feel confident that the notice was delivered to the correct address since there are 4 units at the same address. Next time I have to serve legal papers again will use Diligent Process Services again."
-Catherine (Pro Se)

"I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Diligent Process Services Inc and in particular Michelle Abraham.
First Choice Credit Union has used this company for well over a year now with excellent results. Michelle is professional, courteous and most importantly quick. Average turnaround for us from pickup to service has been 3 days. She keeps in constant communication so you're never left wondering if your job is being completed.
I would highly recommend giving Diligent Process Services Inc and Michelle a try, you will be very pleased."
-Karen Henderson, Operations Specialist-F.C.C.U
"I would definitely recommend you to other firms and staff within my own office. You were incredibly professional and so diligent. In a difficult situation, you got the job done. If I ever need to serve someone in Florida again, I will definitely give you a call. Thank you for all of your help."
Law Clerk to Natalie Derbyshire
Birenbaum, Steinberg, Landau, Savin & Colraine LLP
"Michelle always gets her man or woman!! I hired Michelle Abraham after I paid our local sheriffs department, not knowing that they only try one time to serve an individual. Michelle explained the process of having someone served and the ways possible. She met me within a couple of hours and attempted to serve within 24 hours. After a failed attempt, not on her part but a wrong address, she right away started searching for other possible addresses. The individual being served was making it very difficult to serve by changing his number, home, and business addresses. Once we found the new business, Michelle would drive by all the time to see if the business was open. After a few weeks of being closed, it was open one day and she was able to serve my documents. I highly recommend Michelle with Diligent Process Services Inc for your court processing needs. She's reliable, friendly and persistent."
-Heather (Pro Se)

If you have a question about service of process, chances are that many people have asked the same question before you. Here are answers to some of the questions we hear often:
According to United States legal procedure, all parties must be notified if they are facing legal action against them in a court of law. Notification (called service of process) is accomplished through delivery of documents describing the legal action, and those documents include subpoenas, complaints, summonses, writs, and order to show cause.
A process server is responsible for delivering legal documents to the parties involved in court proceedings. Some states require process servers to be licensed or registered, and all process servers must adhere to all state regulations governing legal service of process.
Process servers typically locate the individual named on the document, travel to that person to deliver the documents, verify the person's identity before handing over the papers, and then provide their client with a signed proof of service. This proof of service - also called the affidavit of service - details the time, date and location of the service of process, and the subject's name. It is the document you can present in court to verify that successful service of process occurred.
Service of process must be carried out by a professional who understands the state laws, is well-versed on best practices and is licensed if required in that state. Any failure to follow legal procedures can result in legal issues for other parties in the court case, which is why you should leave service of process to a professional. An experienced and knowledgeable process server will do everything by the book and make it easy to demonstrate that you fairly notified the other parties of impending legal action.
