Your FIRST CHOICE for Process Serving in Central Missouri

With over 15 years of experience, we offer the best professional service you will find

What We Do

Private process servers perform a vital legal function by serving summonses, subpoenas, landlord/tenant actions, mechanics liens, garnishment, and notices in civil law cases. The main job of a process serving company is to serve legal documents to a defendant, a witness, records custodian, or other interested party in a court case to communicate the legal action being brought against the recipient.

WaterLand Litigation Services and our agents are independent and never party to the legal action related to the service.

Process servers are legally required to serve papers in the correct manner laid out by the state where the legal documents originate. WaterLand Litigation Services understands that laws pertaining to process serving vary state-by-state. We pride ourselves on accuracy and communicate extensively with out-of-state clients to meet the particular laws of each state of origin. We have over 15 years of experience and offer the best professional service you will find in Central Missouri!
