« Service is when a legal document is officially brought to the attention of another person. Documents filed at court must be served. Service is performed by bailiffs, except in some situations. A bailiff serves a legal document by hand delivering a copy of the document to the appropriate person wherever that person is. The bailiff can also leave this application with a “reasonable person” who lives with the person being served. When serving a document, a bailiff writes a certificate of service that contains all of the important information about the service (date, time, person with whom the document was left, etc.). He then gives the certificate to the person who asked him to serve the document, so that that person can file both the certificate and the served document at court. The certificate proves that the document was served. » 1

« Service by a bailiff is an act reserved exclusively for that profession. Under Article 651 of the New Code of Civil Procedure (NCPC), service is different from notification; it is to be performed by a bailiff. Important acts of civil life must be served in order to ensure good information and to preserve the rights of the person affected by the act. » 2

« To be enforceable, judgments must be served (brought to the attention of the losing party). Service is an act by which a bailiff shall inform a litigant through a pleading (summons, conclusions) or a judgment. Pleadings cannot produce an effect if they are not brought to the attention of the recipients; notification of these actions is then essential. Service is a way to notify an act. »
