When a witness or depositions is located in another state, the attorney must first domesticate the foreign subpoena. This means having it reissued by the county clerk where the documents or information is sought. Only then can the subpoena be served to the concerned party or entity.
The same rules apply when domesticating and serving out-of-state subpoenas in the State of Pennsylvania. The good news is that the process is more straightforward than it used to be since Pennsylvania is under the Uniform Interstate Deposition and Discovery Act (UIDDA).
The even better news is that you don’t have to do it all yourself—our reliable process servers are here to assist you.
