Service of Legal Documents Abroad
As members of the Law Society of Upper Canada, licensed paralegals are considered forwarding authorities pursuant to Article 3(1) of the Convention of 15 November 1965 on the Service Abroad of Judicial and Extrajudicial Documents in Civil or Commercial Matters (“Hague Service Convention”).
In the United States, for example, a private process serving company has been appointed by the Department of State to fulfill its obligations to assist foreign parties acting under the Hague Service Convention.
In the United Kingdom, on the other hand, the service is carried out by the Senior Master of the Royal Courts of Justice.
If you are a self-represented litigant or a law firm seeking to have documents served abroad by a proper forwarding authority and would like a free quote, contact us.
