Professional Process Server Verifiable Identification

In several jurisdictions throughout the Unites States, including Mississippi, the identities of persons authorized by court rule, or statute, to serve civil process are not readily available for public verification. Many of these jurisdictions do not require it, and simply allow for persons 18 years of age or older, who are not parties to the particular civil action that is being served, to serve the process. No registration or licensing is required.

As part of their duties, private process servers interact with various segments of their communities on a daily basis. Often, their identification as process servers is requested, or required.

PPSVID.com, established by PPS Collateral Services, allows for a voluntary enrollment of private process servers within their respective jurisdictions to make public their qualifications and identity. The process servers who voluntarily enroll are provided with standardized, verifiable identification cards. These may be viewed when presented to a requesting party, and can be further verified online by scanning a QR (Quick Response) Code on the card, or by selecting a “Click to Verify” button on a website. The response will be a similar image as that appearing on the identification card, and that person’s current status and relevant information.

  1. Hi. I am currently a process server with ABC Legal. Business is slow now, so I am checking around to see if it is possible to serve in the great state of Mississippi.
    What is the prerequisite for process serving in Mississippi? If available,I could serve Hornlake, Southaven, or Olivebranch, may Walls, Mississippi.
    Please advise if this is possible or send enrollment forms, requirements, applicable fees. If I need to apply send website information.

  2. I’m glad to know that process servers are requested and even required at times to show their identification. You never know when someone will be trying to scam you. Seeing someone’s identification makes it easier to trust them.
