The following is a summary of the methods available for service in Chile as well as a specific proposal for process service.
Chile is not a signer of The Hague Service Convention. The formal method in Chile is Letters Rogatory (see below).
Informal service is now available in Chile, although a judgment obtained through this manner will result in a judgment that is not enforceable in Chile (cannot attach assets in Chile).
Advantage: Faster turnaround time (less than 30 days unless unusual circumstances)
Disadvantage: Judgment cannot be enforced in Chile but may result in attaching assets in the country of origin.
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.
Advantage: In effect, creates a case in the country where the documents are served and makes judgment enforceable.
Disadvantage: Serious time delays and costs.
Most countries require the documents to be translated into the official language of the nation where they are to be served. The U.S. State Department recommends translation, but it is not a requirement unless the formal method is used. It is possible, although rare, that a demurer could be filed based upon lack of understanding by the defendant as to the nature and meaning of un-translated documents. It is important that the Defendant understand the nature of the documents. We offer translation services at rates quoted below.
