Private Process Server

The Private Process Server Program governs the certification of private process servers in Arizona. To be eligible to act as a private process server in Arizona, applicants must be certified and comply with the requirements of the Arizona Revised Statutes, the Arizona Rules of Civil Procedure, Arizona Supreme Court Administrative Orders, and the Arizona Code of Judicial Administration.

On November 27, 2002, Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Charles Jones signed Administrative Order No. 2002-110, enacting administrative rules for the Private Process Server Program. The Arizona Code of Judicial Administration §7-204: Private Process Server, took effect on January 1, 2003. This code replaced the prior guidelines for private process servers, as originally adopted by Administrative Order No. 94-20.  

Process servers are responsible for knowing and following the provisions of the Arizona Code of Judicial Administration, section 7-204.
