Service of Process
Immediate Service

Tight, unexpected, and fluctuating deadlines that require a quick turnaround are a routine part of process serving. At Capitol Process Services, we have the experience and manpower to satisfy expedited client requests. Unlike many process serving companies, our office staff and our process servers can be reached quickly and are available to perform assignments with efficiency and speed. We pick up or receive the documents by email, fax, or courier and notify the client immediately upon service of process.

Court Filing

Capitol Process Services employs paralegals and researchers who are experienced with the lower and federal courts in the Washington Metropolitan Area. We are part of a national alliance and work with associates throughout the country who are similarly experienced. We file time-sensitive documents with local, state, and federal court systems and agencies.

Affidavit Preparation

Correctly preparing affidavits requires attention to detail, experience, and a thorough understanding of the laws governing service of process and the subsequent filing of affidavits in each jurisdiction. Capitol Process Services' full-time staff of administrative professionals ensures affidavits are prepared in accordance with the law and filed in a timely manner.

Service on Government Agencies

The process servers at Capitol Process Services have experience navigating the bureaucracy of government agencies. After over thirty-five years, we have lists of contacts and phone numbers that can help facilitate service of process. Additionally, we have developed relationships within many agencies so that questions regarding service of process can be dependably answered.

Legal Research

Capitol Process has years of experience navigating the bureaucratic mazes of local and Federal Government offices and agencies.

Due Diligence

At Capitol Process Services, we have many years of experience constructing narrative affidavits. The affidavits are used by our clients in a variety of ways, including as attachments to motions filed with the courts by our clients. It is imperative that the affidavits are written with clarity and appropriate detail. In some cases, when a client chooses not to use our surveillance and/or hourly services, a properly written affidavit may buttress the client's motion for alternative service. For a flat fee, we make multiple attempts at service. Additionally, our process servers keep detailed notes, including dates and times of attempted service.

Investigative Service
Difficult Serves

In today’s highly technical and sophisticated world, investigative work demands an integrated and creative approach. Capitol Process Services has the experience, judgment, and diligence required to fulfill our clients’ investigative needs.

We specialize in difficult serves. Our process servers are supported by our in-house team of licensed Private Investigators (PIs) who are key to serving evasive witnesses and defendants.

Because of the delicate nature and complexity of serving recalcitrant parties, we consult with the client and tailor a plan that will allow us to effectively serve process based on the specific situation.

Capitol Process Services’ investigators include former law enforcement personnel who are adept at locating individuals, performing background searches, skip tracing, interviewing witnesses, conducting surveillance, and doing comprehensive asset searches.
