Singapore - Process Serving

The strictures of the Singapore Legal system mean that process service of English legal documents is expensive and cost-prohibitive. Consequently, it is cheaper, and quicker, if the documents are sourced in a UK or American court, for one of our process servers to travel from England to effect service. Alternatively we have a representative in Singapore who is appropriately licensed. We are able to provide legal process service for a negotiated fixed fee; this will cover a maximum of three attempts and if the service is not effected even after the third attempt, we can issue an affidavit of non-service In accordance with Order 65 an authorisation in favour of our representative is first required and we can assist you in preparation; a complete and correct address of the respondent is essential and a photograph too, if available. The fee includes a notarized affidavit and courier charges to your office in the United Kingdom.
