10) Are there any additional fees that I need to be aware of before processing my order?

With each order, there is A $0.30/page print fee with each order. We do need 2 copies of the document in order to process it. Why do you need 2 copies? We need two copies because we may need to do substituted service and by law, we need to mail a copy of the document to the defendant at the address. If we have only one copy we cannot properly serve your defendant. So, we ask for two copies which ensures proper service as we cannot pay for the printing of your document. You must provide the copies. Handling fee and Processing. These two fees are broken down for all emailed copies of the document only and does not apply to local pick-ups. Handling is for emailed copies and processing is the mailing fee used to buy the stamp to mail your proof of service either to you or to the courthouse. Handling fees are $2 and the processing fee is $4. These three fees are charged to every emailed or faxed order. You may avoid these fees by requesting a pick up of your document which is free of charge or mailing your document with two copies and a check made payable to LA Process Servers.
