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

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?

It depends on whether you requested rush service or not. Usually rush service will be attempted within 24 hours and routine service will be attempted within 72 hours.

It takes as long as it takes to get them legally served.

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