Do You Need Process Service Thailand?
Process service Thailand is used to give legal notice to a person or business, anywhere in Thailand. This allows a person or business to respond to the proceeding before the court. Normally this legal notice is furnished by delivering a set of court documents to the person to be served.
Furthermore, in legal terms process service establishes a court’s jurisdiction over an individual for a specific legal matter. Typically this is used by small claims, family, or civil courts, for debt collection, family/child support matters, and other legal matters. In laymen’s terms, it is often referred to as a ‘summons’.

Types of Process Service Thailand
Each legal jurisdiction has its own rules for process service. Typically, a summons and related documents is served upon the defendant personally. In some cases, documents is served upon another person of suitable age and discretion at the person’s residence or place of business or employment. Furthermore, service of process may be effected through the mail as in some small claims court procedures.
In other countries, such as many in Europe and Japan, process service must be performed by a court bailiff, either in person or by mail. In exceptional cases, other forms of service may be authorized by procedural rules or court order. This may allow for service by publication when an individual cannot be located in a particular jurisdiction.
Many countries such as Thailand have their own rules. When the service is on a defendant who resides in a country outside the jurisdiction of the court, normally the process service must comply with special procedures prescribed under the Hague Service Convention if the recipient’s country is a signatory, of which the Thailand is not. In addition, some jurisdictions require that the documents served to be visible, others require GPS or other electronic tracking of delivery, and some don’t allow for Sunday or other holiday delivery. Furthermore, for process service Thailand companies, normally the legal representative as per their business registration is served in place of any company owner or director.
