Author John Steinsiek, a renowned instructor and authority in the field of civil process in Texas, has masterfully created a handbook that can be used in the field or in the classroom. Designed for ease-of-use and quick reference, the handbook provides the user with a practical guide to the service of civil documents.
In meticulous format, Mr. Steinsiek provides the process and legal framework which has influenced the interpretation and application of the law, along with practical tips for those serving civil process. The handbook also includes several reference charts to allow the user to answer questions pertaining to jurisdiction, delivery, fees, and documentation requirements.
Each segment provides a definition, a summary of requirements for service, and the necessary information that must be articulated in the return. Included are some examples of service returns for individuals, corporations and an affidavit for alternate service. References are also given for each document covered in this publication. In addition, the rules and codes that govern specific documents are identified in text, as is the case law for further guidance in the service or execution of process.
This is a MUST HAVE for anyone serving process in the State of Texas!
