The following is a summary of the methods available for service in South Korea as well as a specific proposal for process service.

Note: Service is not available in NORTH Korea .

FORMAL SERVICE

Many countries are signatories to The Hague Service Convention (treaty) that governs service of process to be effected between participating nations; South Korea 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 3 to 4 months.

Advantage: Enforceable judgment.

Disadvantage: The time frame is generally longer than the informal method.

INFORMAL SERVICE

Currently, informal service is not available in South Korea.

TRANSLATIONS

Most countries require the documents to be translated into the official language of the nation where they are to be served (in this case, Korean). 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.
