PRIVATE PROCESS SERVERS
Parties wanting to use a private process servicer must first file a Motion for Appointment of a Special Process Server and proposed Order. A sample Motion can be found under
"Special Agents" found here: https://georgiamagistratecouncil.com/forms/
In the Motion, a party must select a specific process server from the approved process server lists from either Chatham County State Court or Chatham County Superior Court.
It is recommended a party first contact a specific process server to inquire about his/her availability and costs before filing a Motion. Chatham County State Court's approved list
of process servers can be found at this link: https://courts.chathamcountyga.gov/State/ProcessServers
Once an Order approving a Motion for Process Server is entered, all arrangements, including payment, for the process server must be handled directly by the requesting party.
The Court does not handle any arrangements or payment for private process servers.
