United States District Court Lawsuits involving suing someone, or taking them to court for some other legal action, requires that they be notified that the legal action has been initiated, and just what that action is. This is done by providing them with a copy of the official legal documents filed with the court in a specific manner, called “service of process.” Service of Process is what we handle and do so by following the appropriate rule of law to assure Proper service of process. After we accomplish service of process upon the defendant we provide a Proof of Service to the Plaintiff's Attorney for filing with the appropriate Federal Court and where the action was initiated.

What is a District Court Proof of Service provided by A.C.E. Process Servers?

The Proof of Service also called an Affidavit of Service must be filed with the U.S.D.C. court as evidence that proper service of process was accomplished within the time period specified by law.

District Courts require the approved Proof of Service Form called a A044 Form.

The proof of service form for U.S.D.C. District Courts in all Jurisdictions are identical.

The basic information that must be stated on each District Court proof of service include:

  • The name of the USDC court in which the action was filed
  • The District Court case name and case number
  • The name of the individual to whom the documents were served
  • A list of each document served
  • The date and time of service
  • The manner of service
  • The location at which the documents were served

The individual serving the documents must then sign the proof of service affidavit, under penalty of perjury, that he or she did in fact serve the documents as stated in the proof of service. While every court has standardized proof of service forms available, and they are easy to use, an affidavit of service may be written or typed out, so long as it includes the required information.

Proof of Service forms provided by the District court(s) lack some relevant information. Though the U.S.D.C. Proof does not require, e.g. the actual time the service took place, we provide that information. We find the U.S.D.C. Proof of Service so deficient, we choose to provide the U.S.D.C A044 Proof of Service AND an A.C.E. Proof of Service which provides a wide range of descriptive details and comments when and where applicable. A.C.E. Proof of Service have been used within the Federal Court System for Twenty years and have always been well received as they meet the mere minimum requirements of the U.S.D.C. court.
