What is Process Service?

So what is Process Service, anyway?
Process Service is a procedure designed to give notice to a person or corporation that they need to be aware of a court (civil, criminal, or administrative) action. There are specific rules about who can serve, how they can serve, and ultimately what counts as service. You can read about the Colorado rules in our previous posts.
When you are served, you are given notice of a court action that you can then deal with. If you have someone else served, the court knows that they have been given notice. That way if they don’t respond or show up, the court can proceed knowing that that person had their opportunity.
