Supreme Court of Texas Civil Process Server Application Process Summary
Click here to register for the TALI Civil Process Education Course
There is an initial or new process server application, and a renewal process server application. Each asks multiple sets of information to which you must swear by affidavit. The application fee due to the Supreme Court of Texas is $225 for the three year certification. If you are renewing and are late (inside of your 45 day window from your expiration date), the Supreme Court applies a penalty of $110.00 to your application fee, raising it to $335.00.
You have to get fingerprints done at a location once you register online for an appointment, which also orders your criminal history and sends it directly to the Supreme Court at a cost of $41.45.
If you are new, you must also complete a Supreme Court of Texas-approved Civil Process Education class. The TALI-sponsored class costs $125.00, and is held monthly in multiple locations including San Antonio, Austin, Houston and Dallas/Ft. Worth. Once you obtain the certificate from completion of this class, you send all materials to the Judicial Branch Certification Commission, Process Server Certification Advisory Board of the Supreme Court. They indicate they manage applications in real time and set a goal of a 15-day turn-around on applications.
As of September 1, 2014, there is a new continuing education requirement. Renewing process servers must document that they completed 12 hours of continuing education during the 3-year certification period.
However, process servers who were already certified on September 1, 2014, or who are certified and expired on September 1, 2014, must complete 12 hours of continuing education during the process server's NEXT 3-year certification period. For example, if you are certified September 1, 2014 and renew on September 30, 2014, you have until September 30, 2017 to complete 12 hours of continuing education.
The total investment is $391.45 for new applicants, $266.45 for timely renewal applicants and $376.45 for late renewal applicants. It is still one of the least expensive turn-key licensed business opportunities in the U.S.
Class certificates are good for one year and criminal history is good for 90 days so you can budget over a few months if you need to.
