Our Switzerland process servers keep clients up to date through Process Server One’s online portal, which makes it easy to request an update on any assignment in progress. For a small fee, our Switzerland process service company will file your Proof of Service with the appropriate court (just ask before we begin). In addition to serving papers, our Switzerland process service company gladly helps to track, trace, and locate missing people or businesses as it relates to process service. A skip trace can quickly reveal new information to get your case back in progress.

By tracking legal changes and current events, Process Server One’s Switzerland process servers understand the best ways to expedite assignments and beat pressing deadlines. In addition to rush service we offer to serve your legal paperwork informally, which can save months of time compared to formal service through the Hague Convention.

Note: Process service in Switzerland (formal and informal) can vary greatly because customs and traditions lead to delays year round. If you choose rush service, Process Server One’s private network of Switzerland process servers and government officials may be able to minimize slowdowns despite the circumstances. Bring any specific questions to a free consultation with our experts.

Here’s How Our Switzerland Process Service Company Works

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

Not available in Switzerland.

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. The city where documents are to be served determines the language (German, French or Italian). We offer translation services at rates quoted below.
