Louisiana Service of Process for Divorce
The Server

Process servers in Louisiana are not licensed. Anyone over the age of eighteen (18) years old who is not a party to the case may serve papers in Louisiana.

Serving Process

Personal service is made when a proper officer tenders the citation or other process to the person to be served. Personal service may be made anywhere the officer making the service may lawfully go to reach the person to be served. Domiciliary service is made when a proper officer leaves the citation or other process at the dwelling house or usual place of abode of the person to be served with a person of suitable age and discretion residing in the domiciliary establishment. Service, whether personal or domiciliary, may be made at any time of day or night, including Sundays and holidays.

Domiciliary service is made when a proper officer leaves the citation or other process at the dwelling house or usual place of abode of the person to be served with a person of suitable age and discretion residing in the domiciliary establishment.

The sheriff of the parish where service is to be made, or of the parish where the action is pending, usually makes service. After making service, the sheriff endorses on a process with the date, place, and method of service and sufficient other data to show service in compliance with the law. He signs and returns the copy promptly after the service to the clerk of court who issued it. The return, once received by the clerk, is then part of the record.
