How to serve the process in Austin?


To serve process in Austin, you must know the Texas rules of civil procedure.


A Private Process Server will deliver court paper to the respondent, complete a Return of Service form which indicates when and where a respondent was served and files the completed Return of Service with the court to send it to be filed with the court.


The Service by Registered Mail, Return Receipt Requested will be able to mail the court papers to the respondent via certified mail, return receipt request, will complete a Return of Service form as long as the return receipt is signed by the clerk, and be able to file it with the court or send the Return of Service to be filed by you.


Service by Posting is a method used when the process server cannot find the respondent unless children are involved.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if a process server can't serve you in Austin?

  • Asking the judge for permission to serve the respondent may be eligible if and only if those who are eligible have tried to serve the respondent in person. One can also be eligible if it has not been certified by mail. If these can prove that the respond is found in a location where they reside or works in a location where the event took place.
  • You must file a motion for substituted service from a private processor. A judge may only sign the order for a substituted service if and only if the respondednt has convinced the judge where the service has taken place.
  • An Order of Substituted Service authorizes eligible people to leave a copy of court papers with anyone over 16 at the location specified in the affidavit and can authorize service in any form.
  • You may also convince the judge through proof from social media, but this is a tricky alternative as social media may have privacy issues. This can mean that not anything on the internet is not believable, thus it cannot prove that a respondent may receive a notification for service of process. You must ensure that you are able to verify the respondent’s social media information to prove this to the judge. Otherwise, this will not be eligible.

What Attorneys Say

Here’s some feedback we’ve received from law firms all over the United States.

Bryan Crone

My office has used Austin Process exclusively since at least 2017. We do a moderate regular volume of business with them each year across several Texas counties and they have handled the ~90% of our straightforward service needs and the ~10% that are more complex equally well. The small staff is friendly and responsive and on the very few occasions when I’ve had something particularly out of the ordinary, Mike has personally ensured it’s taken care of. We’ve had a very good customer experience working exclusively with Austin Process for several years now and I would certainly recommend using them for any service needs throughout the State of Texas.
