Legislative

PSACO has proposed to the Civil Rules Committee, changing C.R.C.P. Rule 4 to address our Associations concern regarding the safety for the citizens of Colorado, the protection of defendants’ rights and to modernize the rules of service to reflect today’s changes in lifestyles and workplace.

Our position in regards to:

Legislative

  • Ensure efficient service of process
  • Allow service to be effected on life partners and roommates, residing at the same address
  • Allow service to be effected on individuals by serving a responsible person by title
  • Allow service to be effected on LLC’s by serving the Manager on duty
  • Enforce Corporations to allow service in the workplace, as currently, some businesses request we leave
  • Enforce the Registered Agent Statue, by requiring a Registered Agent to be present or appoint a person to accept on their behalf

Our judicial system requires documents be served at the onset of a case. The mentality today, is to avoid service at all cost. Modernizing the civil rules of service to more accurately reflect theĀ  way people live and work today, would preserve the courts time and protect defendants rights.

Certification

PSACO has also proposed to the Civil Rules Committee, changing C.R.C.P. Rule 4 to require Process Servers be registered and certified, in addition to being over the age of 18 and a United States citizen.

Our position in regards to:

Certification

  • Designing and Administering the Certification (Education) Program
  • Provide curriculum to those whom want to Certify Process Servers
  • Update curriculum
  • Monitor those teaching Certification courses
  • Issue Certificates of Certification
  • List Process Servers on the Registry as Certified

Currently, there is not an approved Certification course in Colorado. Those choosing to educate their process servers, teach what they want, while others teach nothing. We are aware of courses in Colorado teaching tactics which could land servers in front of a judge or possibly injured. In protecting our industry and our image, we believe those whom choose to serve process in Colorado, should have a good working knowledge of the rules of service and be capable of passing a test.

Registration

PSACO has proposed to the Civil Rules Committee, changing C.R.C.P. Rule 4 to require Process Servers be registered in addition to being over the age of 18 and a United States citizen.

Our position in regards to:

Registration

  • Designing and Administering the Registration Program
  • Persons serving process, should be known and listed in a public registry
  • Process Servers should pass a background check

Currently, there are individuals serving process which consist of convicted felons and pedophiles. This alone, places the citizens of Colorado at risk. We are not advocating listing personal contact information on the registry, we are advocating knowing who is serving process and their background.
