Here’s How Our Bahamas Process Service Company Works

FORMAL SERVICE

The Bahamas is a member state of The Hague Service Convention. Service may be made by formal service through the Central Authority which itself arranges for service by methods prescribed in that country. Documents to be served in accordance with this method must be translated into the official language of the country where the documents will be served. The time frame can range from 3 to 5 months, although there have been some delays recently. Customs and traditions in some The Bahamas tend to lead to a slower pace and less rigid work habits, even among government officials such as Bailiffs.

Advantage: Enforceable judgment.

Disadvantage: The time frame is generally longer than the informal method.

INFORMAL SERVICE

Private process servers may serve documents in most countries, whether a signer of The Hague Service Convention, or not. Service is normally handled in a manner like methods used in the United States, although completion of the service usually takes longer. Customs and traditions in some The Bahamas tend to lead to a slower pace and less rigid work habits. Service sometimes may take up to a month, but our Bahamas process server is always faster than the formal method. The Bahamas process servers who we employ is an off-duty police officers who can, in certain cases, exercise his official capacity to complete the service. Since we pay the process server a bonus (at our own expense) for prompt service, the normal delays are usually reduced. Currently, the time frame for the completion of informal service is approximately 2 weeks.

Advantage: The time frame is generally shorter than the formal method.

Disadvantage: Judgment “may” not be enforceable in the Bahamas.

Service by Publication

We also provide service by publication for defendants whose address is unknown.
