Process service, or “service of process” as expressed by some old-school legal types and official law books, is where one party in a lawsuit gives the other party notice and time to respond to a complaint. In Alabama, this is laid out in Rule 4, Alabama Rules of Civil Procedure. The rule is similar in other states but clearly lays out who can do the serving and who can be served.
