How to Become a Process Server in Minnesota

Updated on

Minnesota has no licensing or registration requirement, and any person 18 years of age or older may become a process server in Minnesota.

If you want to start a business, you’ll only need to meet local small business requirements and can move right into finding your first few process serving clients.

From the Minnesota Rules of Civil Procedure:

Rule 4.02. By Whom Served

Unless otherwise ordered by the court, the sheriff or any other person not less than 18 years of age and not a party to the action, may make service of a summons or other process.
