Here’s How Our El Salvador Process Service Company Works

FORMAL SERVICE OF PROCESS

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

INFORMAL SERVICE OF PROCESS

Private process servers may serve documents in El Salvadore. Service is normally handled in a manner similar to methods used in the United States, although completion of the service usually takes longer. Customs and traditions in El Salvador tend to lead to a slower pace and less rigid work habits. Service sometimes may take several months but informal service is much faster than the formal method. Many process servers who we employ are off-duty police officers, attorneys, or government officials who are able to, in certain cases, exercise their 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. It must be pointed out that delays can occur due to the current political instability in the region. Currently, the time frame for the completion of informal service is approximately 2-4 weeks.

NOTE:  Service in El Salvador is currently extremely dangerous due to gang control of many urban neighborhodds.  The problem is so serious that courier companies such as Federal Express and DHL Express will not deliver in many areas.  Street gangs have murdered process servers and investigators who have entered their neighborhodds.  Local law-abiding citizens routinely refuse to open their doors for fear of a stranger being a gang member.

LETTERS ROGATORY

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.

TRANSLATION

Many countries require the translation of legal documents and translation is recommended by the U.S. Department of State if applicable.
