How long does a process server take to serve someone with a subpeona?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Naples, FL

If you sent out subpeonas (all local) on Thursday 12/27/12 about how many days does it take for those people to get served? Assuming the server catches them on their first attempt?

    Answered . My process server serves everyone local within one day. It does depend on if they hide.
