Serving an Out-of-State Subpoena in Washington

According to one statistic, the US has more than 720 expert witnesses. In the past, if you wanted to subpoena a witness from a different state, you had to go through a long and challenging process that required connecting too many parties. 

Luckily, in 2007 the UIDDA was brought, which eased this process by the mile. Now, subpoenaing an out-of-state witness in Washington can be done in several simple steps. However, even these simplified directions can present an issue to a layperson. That is why it’s best to turn to an expert process server that will take care of your case with due diligence. 

Read below to learn more about how you can subpoena an out-of-state witness in Washington and domesticate subpoenas nationwide through Serve Index.

Washington & the UIDDA

The National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform Law States is the regulatory body that created the Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act (UIDDA). Washington is one of the US states that adopted it. 

Under the UIDDA, a party that wants to send out a foreign subpoena and call a witness from Washington to a different state now only has to submit the subpoena to a clerk in the Superior Court. However, this only applies to states that have also adopted the UIDDA.

Anyone above the age of 18 in Washington can serve a subpoena.
