Divorce is always a difficult process, even when separations are amicable. Vilcol is often called upon to serve divorce papers by family law lawyers to ensure the process can be concluded in an efficient manner. Combining our people tracing and process serving experience has come in handy on multiple occasions. We have had experiences where the spouse being served had disappeared, likely because they were unwilling to receive their divorce papers and wanted to evade being served. On occasions, we have had to hunt people down at some interesting locations, including their country club, their workplace, their new partner’s address, their favourite pub, and even their habitual morning coffee shops, to serve them the papers they have otherwise avoided being served.
Eviction notices must always be handled with care and must follow strict procedures, which is why it’s usually best practice to have them served by licensed process servers like Vilcol. If proper procedures are not followed, you may be found guilty of harassing or illegally evicting your tenants, which will result in repercussions for you. There are strict steps which must be followed, and regulations to abide by in order for eviction notices to be served legally, and for the eviction to proceed smoothly. If you breach the rules, your notice will be invalidated, and you may be required to start again.
A bankruptcy petition is an application to the court for someone’s assets to be taken and sold in order to cover any debts they might have. The petition can be made by a debtor themselves or his or her creditors. With the courts approval the debtors’ assets are sold and the funds distributed between creditors to pay for the debts the person may owe to their creditors, that they can otherwise not cover as they do not have the sufficient funds to do so.
Serving court summons, much like the serving of any legal documentation must be done by a licensed professional, or a third, ‘uninterested’ party. For any legal documentation to be properly served to the person, the document must be physically handed to the person, or be tapped somewhere on their body. Because of this, it is usually easier to serve any court summons through a professional service such as Vilcol, as serving legal documents can sometimes pose unforeseen challenges. At Vilcol, we are more than equipped to handle any adverse stations with professionalism.
Sometimes the serving of legal documents for unpaid loans of debts can be complicated and require tact. At Vilcol, we have encountered many adverse situations where it has required some creative thinking on the part of our agents to serve papers in a legal and efficient manner.
Trespass injunctions serve as a way to ask people to leave your property, premises, or land if they have trespassed onto it without permission. Trespass injunctions are often served to communities of people travelling across the country with no fixed address or location. People oftentimes tend to settle in a field or large open space for a while before moving on to their next location. In theory this is fine unless people choose to settle on someone else’s property without permission.
Restraining orders are a necessary step in ensuring the safety of individuals being threatened with abuse, or actively being abused. People can serve restraining orders against strangers who have been stalking them, or against spouses or people close to them who have been abusing them either physically, verbally, or mentally, or have been threatening to abuse them. At Vilcol, we have the expertise to serve restraining orders and non-molestation orders in an efficient manner to ensure that the individual in harm’s way remains safe.
