For a small fee, our Austria process service company will file your Proof of Service with the appropriate court (just ask before we begin). In addition to serving papers, our Austria process service company gladly helps to track, trace, and locate missing people or businesses as it relates to process service. A skip trace can quickly reveal new information to get your case back in progress.

By tracking legal changes and current events, Process Server One’s Austria process servers understand the best ways to expedite assignments and beat pressing deadlines. In addition to rush service, we offer to serve your legal paperwork informally (which can save months of time compared to formal service through the Hague Convention).

Note: Process service in Austria (formal and informal) can vary greatly because customs and traditions lead to delays year-round. If you choose rush service, Process Server One’s private network of Austria process servers and government officials may be able to minimize slowdowns despite the circumstances.

Details On International Service Of Process In Austria

Hague Service Convention rules have been enforced since September 1, 2020. Alternate forms of service are not permitted as Austria does not accept any alternative forms of service under Article 10. Also, Article 15 is only recognized in Austria if more than a year has passed without a Hague Service Certificate being issued.

Request an immediate status update from our Austria process servers at no additional charge. We stay up-to-date on the rules of international service of process through intelligence briefings provided directly from the United States Department of State. Our notes on the socio-political conditions in nations we serve are provided by the Central Intelligence Agency. Speed of service may take longer than usual in turbulent regions.

Warning: Many websites offer international service of process to Austria at suspiciously low prices. Beware of scam services created by unlicensed companies, especially those offering contracts with unfair or nonexistent refund policies. Some companies offer only a single attempt at service and have no way to overcome common issues like address information that is not up-to-date. Process Server One is prepared for each of these scenarios and more. Contact our Austria process servers with any questions today.

Here’s How Our Austria Process Service Company Works

FORMAL SERVICE

Austria is not a signer of The Hague Service Convention. The formal method in Austria is Letters Rogatory (see below).

INFORMAL SERVICE

This method is prohibited by law in Austria. Violations are punishable by civil and criminal penalties.

LETTERS ROGATORY

Letters Rogatory are used for obtaining evidence or serving pleadings in countries that are not signers of the Hague Service Convention. They are a request from a court in the United States to a court in a foreign country requesting international judicial assistance related to service of process. This method is time-consuming, cumbersome, and should be used only when other options are not available. The use of this method may result in habitual time delays of up to 1 year in the execution of requests. This method should only be used if no treaty is in force or if you are serving a subpoena.

TRANSLATIONS

Austria requires legal documents to be translated into the official language, German. A court-certified translator may be required.
