For a small fee, our Bulgaria process service company will file your Proof of Service with the appropriate court (just ask before we begin). In addition to serving papers, our Bulgaria process service company gladly helps to track, trace, and locate missing people or businesses as it relates to process service.

By tracking legal changes and current events, Process Server One’s Bulgaria 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 Bulgaria (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 Bulgaria process servers and government officials may be able to minimize slowdowns despite the circumstances. Bring any specific questions to a free consultation with our experts.

Warning: Many websites offer international service of process to Bulgaria 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 Bulgaria process servers with any questions today.

Specializing In Hard-To-Serve International Service of Process Assignments

Here’s How Our Bulgaria Process Service Company Works
Many countries are signatories to The Hague Service Convention (treaty) that governs service of process to be affected between participating nations; Bulgaria is one of them. 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 2 to 5 months.
Advantage: Enforceable judgment.
Disadvantage: The time frame is generally longer than the informal method.
Informal service methods are not currently available in Bulgaria.
The State Department’s background notes are informative: “The government’s current priorities include fighting corruption within the legal and law enforcement systems. Reform within the judicial branch has been slow, with political influence, widespread corruption, and delays continuously plaguing the system.”
Letters Rogatory is used for obtaining evidence or serving pleadings in countries which 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.
Since the only service methods currently available in Bulgaria are formal methods, translation is a requirement (even if the party is fluent in English).
