Out-of-State Subpoena Services: UIDDA New York

Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act for New York

In 2007, the Uniform Law Commission passed the Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act which simplified the process of delivering legal materials to out-of-state recipients. This has helped legal professionals from all branches of the field get witnesses, evidence, or other materials faster. In turn, this sped up the court procedures.

Although the process may be simplified now, it can take time to understand the requirements. Professional process servers, like our team at Serve Index LLC, can help you with domesticating and serving out-of-state subpoenas.

What Is the UIDDA?

The Uniform Interstate Discovery and Depositions Act removed some parts of the subpoena delivery process that were complicating the overall procedure. Namely, litigants no longer need to find legal representatives in the state where they want to serve the subpoena. All that is required now is to send the subpoena to a court clerk in the state.

The clerk will follow the rest, issuing another subpoena based on this original and then sending it to the receiver.

Before the UIDDA, you had to go through various procedures to get the subpoena to the correct address. However, with the UIDDA, New York residents can now efficiently serve a subpoena to individuals in other states. You can do it on your own, but there are still states that have not adopted the UIDDA. Moreover, the process itself is tedious. You would still have to communicate with the clerk, fill out additional documents, and perform other time-consuming tasks.

For that reason, service providers are your go-to solution. We at Serve Index LLC make sure to deliver each subpoena in a timely manner. And of course, we don’t just guarantee speed, but efficiency and quality of work as well.

Currently, there are 43 states that have adopted the UIDDA. This means that we can easily deliver your subpoena to any state that has signed the act. In New York, UIDDA was adopted in 2010 under the bill number SB 4256, NY. CPLR 3119.

A similar act is the Uniform Foreign Deposition Act (UFDA). In states that have adopted it, the procedure requires a deposition coupled with a court order that would authorize it. This only makes the process of serving a subpoena more complex. But not for us!
