Laws in Nebraska

As of 2021, Nebraska courts must follow the Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act when serving out-of-state subpoenas.

Anyone wishing to get information on a party or document required in a legal proceeding may request a subpoena.

Per Nebraska’s 2021 Revised Statutes, when a party files a foreign subpoena, a clerk of court in the state of Nebraska shall promptly issue a subpoena for service upon the defendant or witness. 

Issuing a Foreign Subpoena in Nebraska

An out-of-state subpoena in Nebraska must be delivered to the Nebraska court clerk by the party issuing it. The UIDDA’s rules and regulations must be followed in their entirety by the court clerk.

Suppose an individual or a document is needed for a pending court action in Nebraska. In that case, one can apply for a subpoena by notifying the district court for that region. Subpoenas may be delivered in person or by certified mail service.

Legal adults in Nebraska are permitted to serve papers on others as long as they are not associated with the case or are one of the parties involved.

You should also be aware that, unless otherwise instructed, the Nebraska court has a designated time for service. The time for service varies depending on the type of subpoena.
