The Seminar

The course is a 6 hour seminar to instruct beginner and veteran process servers. The cost of the seminar, which includes our Process Serving in Illinois manual, is $395.00. This is our fifth year of presenting an ever-evolving seminar.

The cost of the class is $395.00 and $195.00 for additional attendees of the same firm.

The course curriculum provides a comprehensive foundation for those new to or considering a career in process serving. For veteran process servers, the class provides a comprehensive review of the recent Illinois court cases that have had a major impact on Illinois process serving law: serving a resident of a gated community or condo association, serving via Facebook and other social media, the important difference between serving a dissolved LLC vs. a dissolved corporation (inc.), trespass immunity and more.

We designed the seminar to provide basic training for the absolute novice and to provide a refresher for the experienced process server via formalized instruction on the law and procedure for proper service of process. The Process Serving in Illinois manual you receive is the only one of its kind in Illinois. We guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
