Ongoing APSA Projects
We're moving forward on crafting language to add Process Servers to persons listed under ARS §13-1203 (Aggravated Assault) to make it a FELONY to assault a Process Server in Arizona.
We're also moving forward with language to amend ARS §13-1501(2), §13-1503, and §13-1504 relating to Trespass to give Process Servers, Sheriffs and Constables an exemption from arrest when their presence is necessary for the service of process on certain properties.
Protective orders are being addressed, too. We're crafting language to allow Process Servers the ability to charge a fee for service of ALL Protective Orders. Right now, we're prohibited from charging a fee for Orders of Protection and certain Injunctions Against Harassment.
