The following is a summary of the methods available for service in Slovak Republic as well as a specific proposal for process service.
Many countries are signatories to The Hague Service Convention (treaty) that governs service of process to be effected between participating nations; the Slovak Republic 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 3 months.
Advantage: Enforceable judgment.
Disadvantage: The time frame is generally longer than the informal method.
At this time, Informal Service is not available in the Slovak Republic.
The State Department’s background notes are informative: “The government’s current priorities include fighting corruption within the legal and law enforcement systems. Reform within the judicial branch has been slow, with political influence, widespread corruption, and delays continuously plaguing the system.”
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. 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. We offer translation services at rates quoted below.
