For a small fee, our Ireland process service company will file your Proof of Service with the appropriate court (just ask before we begin). In addition to serving papers, our Ireland process service company gladly helps to track, trace, and locate missing people or businesses as it relates to process service. A skip trace can quickly reveal new information to get your case back in progress.

By tracking legal changes and current events, Process Server One’s Ireland 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 Ireland (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 Ireland 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.

Here’s How Our Ireland Process Service Company Works

FORMAL SERVICE

Many countries are signatories to The Hague Service Convention (treaty) that governs service of process to be affected between participating nations; Ireland 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

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 and Canada, although completion of the service usually takes a bit longer. Service in Ireland is very efficient and like the time frames within the United States. Our process server in Ireland coordinates all services and is extremely thorough and efficient. 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.

Note: Ireland formally objected to service by private process server when they ascended to the Hague Service Convention. However, they did not preclude the use of an Irish solicitor to handle the service. While service by private process server may satisfy the court of jurisdiction, it may result in a judgment that is unenforceable in Ireland.

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

Disadvantage: Judgment “may” not be enforceable in Ireland.

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.
