Malaysia is not a signer of The Hague Service Convention. The formal method in Malaysia is Letters Rogatory (see below). Documents to be served in accordance with this method must be translated into the official language of Malaysia which is Malay. The time frame can range from 6 to 10 months.
Advantage: Enforceable judgment.
Disadvantage: The time frame is longer than the informal method.
Our Malaysia process server may serve documents in accordance with local law. Service is normally handled in a manner like methods used in the United States or Canada, although completion of the service usually takes longer. Most Malaysia process servers who we employ are off-duty police officers or other government officials who can, 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. Currently, the time frame for the completion of informal service is approximately 3 weeks.
Advantage: The time frame is shorter than the formal method.
Disadvantage: Judgment “may” not be enforceable in Malaysia.
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 the court of jurisdiction to the 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 six to ten months 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 (in this case, Malay). 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.
