Wikipedia gives a good working definition of a process server. It states, "Service of process is the procedure by which a party to a lawsuit gives an appropriate notice of legal action to another party...so as to enable that party to respond to the proceeding before the court, body, or other tribunal."
More than this, however, a process server will also sometimes serve notices of bank levies, and notices of earnings withholding. Process servers also serve notices by regular and overnight mail.
This business, therefore, has far more to it than stating to an unwitting defendant, "You've been served!" (By the way, in your professional conduct, that is never an appropriate utterance.)
Note: If you are pressed for time, a quick way to get your process service bond is to complete the form below, and specify in the comments section the *date* that you would like on your California process server bond AND the county in which you will file your bond.

A process server bond is a bond required by some states to engage in the business of service of process. The bond is a guarantee on behalf of the public that the process server will follow all statutory rules and regulations in the performance of their duties.
Of note, it is is important to emphasize that a process server bond is not insurance for the process server. It does not protect the process server at all. For example, if the process server were to be harmed by someone on whom the service of process takes place, this bond does not protect the individual.
Unlike insurance, if a claim is paid by a surety company for wrongful acts by a process server, the surety company will actively seek to recoup all expenses from the bond's principal (the owner of the bond).
Rather, the process server bond protects the public from wrongful, negligent, or illegal acts on the part of a process server.
