Routine service is attempted within 72 hours of receipt. Service will be attempted repeatedly until your paperwork is served, or the server determines the address provided is bad.
When your paperwork requires immediate, same day service, go with a rush. Your paperwork will go out that day or night and be hit every 24 hours (remote cities excluded).
Having trouble serving your paperwork, an experienced Active Legal process server can discreetly stakeout the given address for any number of hours (2 hour minimum on most jobs). A 24 hour notice is required to set up time with a server in most instances.
Let Active Legal take the headache out of finding out of area servers. After 20 years in the industry, our office has built an extensive network of tried and true servers spanning the nation. For a low, flat rate fee, we can serve anyone, anywhere.
Our office and staff have extensive knowledge and experience with filing legal documents throughout California. Our local runners make daily trips to the Kern County Superior Court of Bakersfield, and the Kern County Recorder's Office.

All documents can be emailed directly to our office and filed same day if needed.
We accept all new case filings via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via regular mail. Routine filings in Bakersfield are filed within 2 days of receipt. A conformed/filed copy is thereafter emailed back to our client, with the original following in the mail or pouch.
For a small fee, you can have a member of our staff file your documents in person the same day we receive them (must have filings by 2:30 pm M-Thurs, and by 11am Fridays for Bakersfield court houses). Documents will be delivered directly to the appropriate window with Proof of delivery following.

In most cases, the request can be submitted that same day in Bakersfield (turnaround varies depending on case size and availability).

If you don't have that, we can also research on our end to try and find it for you.
Our office makes daily trips to the Kern County Recorder's office. Since the recorder requires original documents, all recordings must be mailed to our office before a staff member is able to record them. Our staff can also obtain copies of recorded documents if needed. In most cases, we just need the document recorder number.
Active Legal is a licensed and bonded photocopy service. This means our staff is able to go in and copy records for insurance claims or lawsuits. An experienced member of our staff will schedule an appointment with the location where the records are kept, scan all requested records, and email a PDF copy. Hard copies can also be printed out and mailed if preferred. This service is mainly used for records that have been subpoenaed for trial, or by patients that have signed a release of record.
In most cases, the first step in obtaining copies of records is to serve the location with a Subpoena. Our process servers can handle this step for you. If using Active Legal to also copy the records, let us handle it start to finish. We'll serve the Subpoena and follow up with the location when records are ready for copying.
Once your records are ready to be copied, one of our licensed photocopiers will set an appointment to copy the files, after which they will email a PDF version to you. For a small fee, we can also print out a hard copy of the records, and mail or overnight them to you. We can also duplicate for opposing counsel if requested.
Our messengers and process servers are available for a wide range of deliveries. Have a file or box of exhibits you need picked up? Let Active Legal handle it. Our drivers are professional, courteous, and prompt. A member of our staff can also provide a Proof of Delivery if needed.
To schedule a pickup, call our office to check messenger availability for same day jobs.
