Definition - What does Servicing mean?

Servicing is the the process of delivering orders from the court, or carrying out other legal procedures. These orders may include summons to appear in court, restraining orders, or other documents that are of an important legal nature. Delivery of such court documents is often carried out by a member of law enforcement.

Justipedia explains Servicing

Although the court takes care of most of its business in a courtroom, there is often need for it to communicate with people who are not in the courtroom. Formal legal documents are often used to do this. For example, a person may be ordered by the court to show up on December 3rd. In order to make sure that the person receives this notice, a law enforcement member may be tasked with tracking the person down and delivering the document personally. This way there can be no denying that the person never received the court order.
