Process Server Information

The Georgia State-wide Business Court (“Business Court” or “Court”) provides specialized expertise for the adjudication of complex business and commercial cases.  It is the only trial court in Georgia with state-wide jurisdiction and, thus, Process Servers appointed by the Court pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 9-11-4(c)(4) may be called upon to serve papers and process throughout the state in cases falling within the Court’s jurisdiction.

The Business Court’s 2022 Process Server Application Packet includes: (1) Process Server Application Instructions, (2) Process Server Application (including a list of supplemental documents that must be submitted with the application), (3) State Bar of Georgia Member Endorsement, and (4) Process Server Code of Conduct.  The Court will only consider fully completed applications that are accompanied by all required supporting documentation.

Private Process Servers are appointed by the Business Court on an annual basis.  All appointment orders expire at the end of each calendar year (i.e., December 31), and applicants must re-apply to be reappointed for the following year.  For 2022 appointments, applicants must submit a completed application packet no later than March 11, 2022.  Decisions regarding appointments and appointment orders will be issued no later than March 31, 2022.  The Business Court reserves the right to deny any application as it deems appropriate in the interest of the Court and litigants.

Completed application packets must be emailed to the Court at gsbc_clerk@gsbc.us.  If you have questions regarding the application process, please contact the Clerk of Court at (404) 656-6620.
