Court Runner APP Services

Process Serving

Service of Process is the main goal of Court Runner. We have developed and established this app in order to facilitate the process, making it accessible in a reliable manner, that is legally recognized.

Through the Court Runner APP, every part of the service of process is registered, so that you are in the know and notified of all the goings-on with your document serving—when the party with whom you are involved in court proceeding receives them,  you will get a notification regarding the time  and date of service, etc.

Process Serving is used in everyday law and practiced in every single courtroom, it is the delivery and acceptance of due processes, documents, notifications of lawsuits—to the respective target recipients. This can be someone that you’re suing, this can be someone that is suing you and you need to update them about the court case. Or this can be on behalf of a court of law.

Ultimately, it is the delivery and official acceptance of court documents – while observing the Canadian rule of service of process. So, the person (or ‘party’) receiving the documents will acknowledge that they have received them, and then will proceed in their actions, responses, defense  as the case may be.

Court Filing

Court Filing, as per its name, is the process of having all necessary documents submitted to the court and filed by a clerk – meaning they enter the official record. For affidavits of service—where process serving, and Court Runner is concerned—these are key points in legal proceedings. They confirm the reception of legal documents necessary to continue with trials, initiate them, or otherwise set things into motion. Once the parties have legitimately signed off, and the documents have been filed in the court of law in question, the proceedings can begin.

Through Court Runner, once you are notified of the service being completed (the reception of the documents by the court clerk), you will equally be notified once the process server submits these, filing them with the clerk. In some cases you will also receive a snapshot of the table of contents proving the documents was filed successfully (or a communication from the court), which will act as your own proof of action.

Moreover, you will easily be able to access proof of this in the Court Runner app. They’ll be stored in your account. This means you can always go back to them if you ever need them.

Skip Tracing

People who need to receive legal documents, especially if they are anticipating them, can be difficult. Besides intentional skipping (coming from “skipping town”), some people just happen to have changed addresses, or are otherwise unfindable at the time when you need to find them! Hence, why people opt-in for skip trace search.

Most qualified (and our verified) process servers who are “authorized requesters” or have a private investigator license are able to perform skip tracing: locating the recipient party using a various combination of resources and databases. It is extensive and complicated work at times, so it is absolutely essential that it be done by someone who knows their stuff.

So, we at Court Runner provide exactly that – a network of “skip trace abled process servers”, with the direct option to skip trace if you don’t know the respondent’s.

What to do if you don’t know where the party is?

Just select the “skip trace” option in the Court Runner app, fill in the information you have, and order. We will do a skip trace and send you the result. 

Please, bear in mind that, we only do skip trace for process serving purposes. Only in rare cases we do skip trace outside of that.

With Court Runner – everything is at your fingertips.

Why You Need A Professional — Process Service App

The bare essentials of process serving, which Court Runner brings into a simple app, are:

  • Obtaining and/or finding the necessary information required to track down the individual
    • Skip tracing in case this is not directly available
  • Obtaining the proper documents and ensuring all is good to go
    • Double-checking and providing information in the opposite case
  • Finding the correct party and serving the documents, ensuring the affidavit of service is signed and completed.
    • Affidavit of Service is the official proof (a sworn and notarized document) showing how, when your your documents was served.
  • Once everything is completed, the affidavit of service is submitted to the court.


All of this constitutes a standard method of process serving. Whilst ultimately a simple task, there are many things that complicate matters, making it that much more essential that we’ve streamlined this.


What is the Affidavit of Service (AOS)


The affidavit of service is basically the proof that the documents have been received. It comes with all sorts of information, such as the time and date of reception, type of service, etc. Once this is filed with the court, it means that every party has accepted the action, and is able to take steps on their side. 


The Court Runner Process


After registering, you simply provide the information about the receiving party that is required to deliver the documents, and in case you don’t know it, the option of Skip Tracing is immediately available.

Once you submit the information about your documents, the process server will show up, receive them, make copies if necessary*, and then head out to serve them. You can also email the documents too, if you live far away or it may be the most preferred option for you.

As soon as the process server finds the receiving party and serves them with the court documents. The Affidavit of Service will be provided, and you will be immediately notified through the app. In case of failure to track the party down, Court Runner provides a total of 3 attempts to do so.

*incurring additional prices based on the number of documents and copies. This is all clearly visible, and explained in the app.
