Process Servers of USDC and Federal Rule 4. Service of a Summons

The United States District Courts, a/k/a U.S.D.C. also referred to as the “Federal Courts” are the general trial courts of the United States Federal court system. District Court cases are considered the bears of the court system as they deal with most of the court cases. Both civil and criminal cases are filed in the district court, which is a court of law, equity, and admiralty. There is a United States bankruptcy court associated with each United States district court. Each federal judicial district has at least one courthouse, and many districts have more than one. The formal name of a Federal district court is "the United States District Court " and is also known as the Federal “USDC” and typically has name and location associated with the United States District Court such as for the Eastern District of New York, Southern District of Florida and the North District of California.

Typically, as Authorized Process Servers, our participation with the United States District Courts is to assist with exercising original Federal jurisdiction over a defendant—The most popular USDC types of cases we are asked to effect service of process upon a defendant under rule 4 are as follows:

  • Civil actions arising under the Constitution, laws, and treaties of the United States
  • Certain civil actions between citizens of different states
  • Civil actions within the admiralty or maritime jurisdiction of the United States
  • Civil actions in which the United States is a party

For most of these cases, the jurisdiction of the federal district courts is concurrent with that of the state courts. In other words, a plaintiff can choose to bring these cases in either a federal district court or a state court. Congress has established a procedure whereby a party, typically the defendant, can "remove" a case from state court to federal court, provided that the federal court also has original jurisdiction over the matter. For certain matters, such as patent and copyright infringement disputes and prosecutions for federal crimes, the jurisdiction of the district courts is exclusive of that of the state courts. A.C.E Process Servers are deeply engaged with serving process under State statutes and Rule 4.

What is a U.S.D.C. Jurat?

A U.S.D.C. jurat is a certificate by the person before whom a writing was sworn and is designed to compel truthfulness on the part of the signer. The U.S.D.C. jurat is completed during the execution of an affidavit and is generally written at the foot of an affidavit stating when, where, and before whom such affidavit was sworn. Before executing a jurat, a Notary Public must be satisfied as to the identity of the signor, and the voluntary nature of that person’s signature. At least one picture identification issued by a state or government agency i.e. Driver’s license or a Passport, is required at all times. The signing of the affidavit, and the execution of the jurat, is required to be done at the same time in the physical presence of each other.
