Our Israel process servers keep clients up to date through Process Server One’s online portal, which makes it easy to request an update on any assignment in progress. For a small fee, our Israel process service company will file your Proof of Service with the appropriate court (just ask before we begin). In addition to serving papers, our Israel 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 Israel 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 Israel (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 Israel 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 Israel Process Service Company Works
Israel is a signatory to The Hague Service Convention (treaty) that governs service of process to be affected between participating nations. 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 treaty do not require translation. Israel will process a request for service of documents only if the request emanates from a judicial authority, i.e., the clerk of the court. Israel does not consider private attorneys to be officers of the court. The United States has informed both the Hague Conference on Private International Law, and Israel, that, pursuant to Rule 4 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and comparable U.S. state laws, attorneys are competent to execute the Hague Service Request application in the United States. Nevertheless, Israel may reject service applications that do not include both the seal of the court, and signature and title of the clerk of the court. Good news: We will prepare the required documents and forward them to you for issuance by your local court. The time frame can range from 2 to 4 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. Service is normally handled in a manner like methods used in the United States, although completion of the service usually takes longer. Service sometimes may take several months but informal service is generally faster than the formal method. In Israel, we use a private investigator who is empowered to serve legal documents. 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.
Advantage: The time frame is shorter than the formal method.
Disadvantage: Judgment “may” not be enforceable in Israel.
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.
Most countries require the documents to be translated into the official language of the nation where they are to be served. Although Hebrew is the official language, it is not required that documents filed in English be translated. 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.
