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

FORMAL SERVICE

Many countries are signatories to The Hague Service Convention (treaty) that governs service of process to be effected between participating nations; Switzerland 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 4 months (recently 2 months).

Advantage: Enforceable judgment.

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

INFORMAL SERVICE

Not available in Switzerland (prohibited by Swiss law).

LETTERS ROGATORY

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, Switzerland requires that the documents be translated into the official language of the Canton where they are to be served.
