Process Servers & Professional Photocopiers
Process Server Registration
The registration of a process server is required when any person makes more than 10 services of process within California during one calendar year. The registrant must file a certificate of registration with the county clerk, along with a bond of $2,000 executed by an admitted surety insurer. The county clerk then forwards the bond to the county recorder for recording.

Fees
The registration filing fee is $100. The recording fee is $8 for the first page and $3 for each additional page of the bond. An additional fee of $3 will be charged for every page of a document that is not standard size, which is 8.5" by 11".

Professional Photocopier Registration
Professional photocopier registrants must file a certificate of registration with the county clerk, along with a bond in the amount of $5,000 executed by an admitted surety insurer. The county clerk then forwards the bond to the county recorder for recording. Certificates are effective for two years.

Fees
The registration fee is $175, plus $10 for the required identification card. The fee to record the bond is $8 for the first page and $3 for each additional page of the bond. If the applicant is currently a registered process server, the fee is $100, with all other fees applicable as stated above.
