A process server is required to register with the auditor of the county in which the process server resides or operates his or her principal place of business.
The process server registration form can be submitted:
- by mailing the original completed form and a check for $10.00 made out the Whatcom County Auditor
- in person at the Whatcom County Auditor's Office. We accept cash, check, and most credit/debit cards (a processing fee applies to card payments)
Renewal and Changes
Renewal of the process server registration must occur prior to or on the expiration date or when the registrant information changes. A new process server registration number will be issued if the renewal occurs after the expiration date.
Changes to the following information require an updated process server registration:
- The name of his or her business,
- Business address,
- Business telephone number
The process server must renew his or her registration within ten days of the date the registrant information changes. The $10.00 registration fee is due upon renewal.
