When it comes to service of process in Oregon, there are several laws and statutes that govern the procedures of various types of documents and proceedings. This is why it’s important to work with a process server who cares about training and professional development. You don’t want your case to fall apart because the process server didn’t follow the rules.
Here’s a list of just some of the rules and regulations that we keep track of and that inform what we can and can’t do, and what we must do when providing process service for our clients. (Note: this is not an all-encompassing list and we are not attorneys. Every government office and type of proceeding usually has its own applicable statutes).
