The following is a summary of the methods available for service in The Czech Republic as well as a specific proposal for process service.
Many countries are signatories to The Hague Service Convention (treaty) that governs service of process to be affected between participating nations; the Czech Republic is one of them. Service in the Czech Republic may only be made by this method, unless the Defendant is on active duty in the U.S. military. 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 4 months, recently 2-3 months.
Advantage: Enforceable judgment.
Disadvantage: The time frame is generally longer than the informal method.
Private process servers may serve documents in most countries, whether a signer of The Hague Service Convention, or not. This method is not available in the Czech Republic. The Czech Republic government can file an action against a foreign entity that violates the provisions of the Hague Convention. Service by mail is strictly prohibited and prosecuted.
Most countries require the documents to be translated into the official language of the nation where they are to be served (in this case, Czech). 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. We offer translation services at rates quoted below.

Informal: Not available
