A process server is a person who serves legal documents.
NY General Business Law (GBL) Article 89-t defines a process server as someone who:
- Derives income from the service of papers in an action
- Has effected service of process in five or more actions or proceedings in a 12-month period
More simply put, any person who regularly serves papers for income is a process server.
New York Civil Practice Laws and Rules (CPLR) Article 2103(a) states that any person 18 years of age or over who is not a party to the action may serve legal documents, unless otherwise directed by law or a court.
