Domestication of Foreign Subpoenas

Out-of-state, also known as “foreign,” subpoenas are often subject to a range of procedures and documents that can present challenges. Requirements can vary by state with potential unique complexities, particularly in large, multi-state legal cases. At The Process Server, we uniquely specialize in foreign subpoenas for states that use Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act (UIDDA) subpoenas, and those that do NOT.  It includes both in-bound and out-bound subpoenas, for cases of all types and sizes. 

Our team has decades of experience and skill in quickly and effectively serving subpoenas throughout all counties in all 50 states, and U.S. territories. We’ve played a key role in thousands of foreign subpoenas for court cases spanning more than three decades. If your legal case involves people or parties that are located out of state from where your case is being heard, we can help.

Understanding Domestication of Foreign Subpoenas 

Usually, foreign subpoenas are duces tecum, or seeking documents from a record holder out of state. However, many are ad testificandum, which requires person to testify either in court or by other testimony. In either instance, failure to comply will result in legal punishment for the recipient of the subpoena. Whether a subpoena must be issued in another state, processed from another state or another federal district court, or located in-state, our fast and accurate service is provided by experienced process servers familiar with local, state, and national laws.
