How do u go about choosing a process server? Im currently googling process servers in my area. Would u consider a private server more reliable than waiting on the state? How much does it roughly cost?

I would try calling the courts.  They must have a list of processors they can reference.

They have to be licensed..

How much does it cost to get papers served?

Process serving rates can vary from case to case and state to state. Same day or rush serves are typically billed at a higher rate. The cost of a routine serve (a serve that is first attempted within 5-7 days of receiving the papers) can be as low as $20 and can go up to $100, but the national average is somewhere between $45 and $75.

Thank you. Here in NM though, they don't have tobe licensed, they just have to be 18 or older & not apart of the court case. My pre-paid attorney told me that.

Call the court clerk or an attorney's office and get a couple of names. They are usually quicker, especially if there are multiple addresses for who you're serving. Idk how much they charge now. When I was a paralegal it was usually 45 plus mileage, but that's been awhile.
