If you are engaged as a process server in Michigan you are required under Chapter 1. Civil Procedure Section 2.109 of the Michigan Court Rules of 1985 to file a Michigan Process Server Bond as a condition of licensure.
A surety bond protects the party requesting the bond, the Obligee, against any financial losses as a result of poor financial decisions, damages, unethical decisions, or a failure to follow state and local laws on the part of you, the Principal. The Michigan Process Server Bond holds you accountable for your business decisions.
By possessing a Michigan Process Server Bond, you are telling your Obligee that you can be trusted as a Principal and that you stand behind your business decisions.
