International Process Servers for Japan

The Japan Process Service Company

International Service of Process to Japan

We’re closing in on half a century in business as international process servers. With 33 years of experience as an international process service company, government agencies, law firms, business organizations, celebrities, and more rely heavily on our experience. We serve other countries according to the Hague Service Convention and additional methods for countries that haven’t signed with The Hague nations. We’ve learned from experience that every country has its own rules in place that keep cases moving smoothly.

Only trust international process servers that have experience in the nations you need your papers served in. Otherwise, the assignment will be a great risk. Our goal as your international process service company is to push for the best results and bring that feeling of justice and relief back to your everyday life. It’s hard to find another international process service company and litigation support service for Japan with a similar track record of expertise and customer service because our international process servers are the leaders by far. 

We’re able to communicate with foreign courts on your behalf and help collect difficult signatures for you if needed. The status of your service assignment is available at all times upon request through our online portal. If you’re approaching a deadline in your case, we may achieve an extension to allow you more time. International attorneys and law firms rely on us monthly to serve locations around the world quickly through our global network of registered, licensed, and bonded international process servers. 

Our global team makes fast and efficient process service possible no matter the location. From our corporate office in West Palm Beach, Florida, we facilitate the production and delivery of legal documents to any location. For immediate process service to Japan, ask the experts at Signed, Sealed, and Delivered about your best options. Our experienced, licensed, and bonded Japan process servers take any questions about your Japan process service needs. Call on our process service company to make progress in your case today.

Process Service Procedures for Japan

FORMAL SERVICE

Japan is a member of the Hague Service Convention; therefore, we work directly with the Central Authority to complete your process service request immediately. The Central Authority will make arrangements according to Japan’s legal processes (the time frame ranges from 2 to 3 months in most cases). We adhere to Japan’s requirements by preparing the USM-94 form, letters of transmittal, and all other required documents (in Japanese).

Process Service Advantage: Enforcement of judgment in Japan.

Disadvantage: The time frame is generally longer than the informal method.

INFORMAL SERVICE

Informal process service is forbidden in Japan.

TRANSLATIONS

Legal documents are required to be translated into the official language of the country of service. It is recommended by the U.S. State Department that documents be translated, but this is only required during the formal process service method. In rare cases, a demurer may be filed if documents that have not been translated cannot be understood by the defendant. Our translation rates are provided below.
