Here’s How Our Mexico Process Service Company Works
Formal process service through the Hague Service Convention is available in Mexico. It typically takes less than three months (sometimes less than one) to complete Hague Convention Service in Mexico. Our most experienced process servers have worked closely with government officials and members of the Central Authority of here, and in many cases this helps expedite your service. If you are curious about the status of your assignment, we offer status updates on all Hague Service Convention process service requests. Contact us using the forms on this page to serve your legal documents in Mexico as soon as possible.
Upon receipt of your assignment, we will prepare Letters Rogatory and the Hague forms and return them to you for issuance by the Clerk of your local Court. You will return them to us, and we will arrange for translation, as well as translation of the service documents. Again, documents to be served in accordance with this method must be translated into the official language, Spanish. The Service will be completed via the Central Authority, which itself arranges for service by methods prescribed in Mexico. The time frame can range from 3 to 5 months (recently 4 months). This is the only officially recognized method of process service in Mexico.
In countries where formal process service methods are not recognized, private process servers deliver legal papers informally (in person) directly to the business or individual’s address. If you do not know the correct address to serve a person or business, we can find it for you immediately. In many nations, informal (in person) service of legal documents works the same way as it does in the United States or United Kingdom. However, remote locations (especially those in nations outside North America) may take longer to serve due to private security or other commonly-used services to help avoid the service of legal documents. Rest assured, we have more than three decades of practice and will keep you updated throughout the process service assignment. Our process service specialists complete most informal (in person) service assignments in less than 4 weeks and can make a next-day service attempt in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and more. Contact us using the forms on this page to serve your legal documents in Mexico as soon as possible. Note: This is the proper process service method for serving U.S. military personnel.
Judgments are typically enforceable in the U.S. but not in Mexico because the Mexican government requires formal service.
NOTICE: Personal service in Mexico is highly unlikely due to high security. Most businesses and many residences have security guards who will deny access to the defendant. You should obtain a court order, in advance, allowing for substituted service on an employee, household member, or security guard. Such service is usual and customary in Mexico.
Letters Rogatory is another option for obtaining evidence during discovery or notifying a person or business of legal action you are taking against them. This process takes longer than others; however, Letters Rogatory are recognized are a formal method of international process service. In many nations, it is the only formal method available because they are not members of the Hague Service Convention.
Most countries require the documents to be translated into the official language of the nation where they are to be served (in this case, Spanish). Translation is required if the Formal method is used and recommended if the Informal by our process server in Mexico 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 untranslated documents. We offer translation services at rates quoted below.
