Really the requirements to serve process are pretty simple…
1. You must be 18 years old or older.
2. You must not be a party to the court case.
That’s it in most places.
You may live in one of the rare places where you have to take a short, simple test to be able to serve process, but it’s unlikely you live in one of those places.
The test is because you need to know what you’re doing! If you need to learn how to serve process, be sure to check out The Investigator’s Ultimate Guide to Process Serving.
Also, some places require you to register with the clerk of courts if you serve over a certain number of service packs a year.
How can you learn the specifics of your area? Contact your county court house. They will be completely helpful with this. They do it all the time.
Committed to your success as a Process Server,
