How to serve the process in Houston?
To serve process in Houston, you must know the Texas rules of civil procedure.
The 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.
Show Cause Order: Once they receive the motion and the order from the court, they are obligated to appear, and defend themselves. At the order to show cause hearing, if the court finds the other party to be non-compliant with the court’s orders, the courts can hold the non-compliant party in contempt, and issue sanctions against them.
Service by Posting is a method used when the process server cannot find the respondent unless children are involved.
Service by Publication is used when a process server cannot find a respondent’s location.

What Attorneys Say
Here’s some feedback we’ve received from law firms all over the United States.
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.
I’ve been using Austin Process for service and skip tracing since I opened my practice. They are incredibly reliable, responsive, and always get the job done.
I have worked with Austin Process for nearly a decade. They are prompt, professional, and reliable. They have never let me down and have extensive knowledge of the rules of civil procedure and expeditious turnaround time. Highly recommend!
This is a top notch outfit! They are quick, efficient, and VERY experienced. They are our firm’s go to process server every time.
