How Does UIDDA Foreign Subpoena Domestication Work in the State of West Virginia?

The State of West Virginia has adopted the Uniform Law Commission and enacted the Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act (UIDDA). The subpoena, the West Virginia UIDDA Service document issued under the authority of a court, requires the individual to show up and provide testimony at deposition or produce and permit inspection and copying of designated books, documents, records, electronically stored information, or tangible things in the possession, custody, or control of the individual; or permit inspection of premises under the control of the individual.

A party must submit a foreign subpoena to the clerk of court for any judicial district to conduct discovery as per West Virginia UIDDA Service laws. A subpoena issued by a clerk of court must be served in compliance with West Virginia Rules of Civil Procedure as per West Virginia UIDDA Service.

Here’s How our West Virginia Foreign Subpoena Domestication – West Virginia UIDDA Process Service Works

The Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act (UIDDA) is a model statute adopted by forty-three (43) states in the United States, including West Virginia, to establish a uniform process for obtaining depositions and discovery in a way that is conforming with other participating states.

Most often, foreign subpoenas (subpoenas originating from out of state) are duces tecum. They seek documents from a record holder located in another state. However, in some cases, foreign subpoenas are ad testificandum, a court summons to appear and give oral testimony for use at a hearing or trial. In both instances, failure to comply with West Virginia Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act (UIDDA) Service will result in legal punishment for the recipient of the subpoena. At Process Server One, we provide fast, accurate, and reliable service by experienced West Virginia process servers, whether a subpoena must be issued in another state, processed from another state or another federal district court, or located in-state.

In West Virginia, under the Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act (UIDDA), litigants can present a clerk of the court located in the state where discoverable materials are sought with a subpoena issued by a court in the trial state. Once the clerk receives the out-of-state subpoena (commonly referred to as a foreign subpoena), the clerk will issue a subpoena for service upon the person or entity on which the original subpoena is directed.
