Texas Process Servers do not have to be licensed. However, they do have to obtain certification from the Texas Judicial Branch Certification Commission. This certification is good for two-year increments and process servers must undergo an extensive criminal background check and complete a training course in order to be certified.
New for July: Texas Legal Services has added Cameron County, El Paso County and Dona Ana County, NM to our marketing plan with ServeNow.com. Let’s see the growth!
Our Hidalgo County launch with Serve-Now.com was a success! We are looking forward to adding more counties.
