Any person who makes more than 10 services of process in any 1 calendar year must be registered. The registration certificate also empowers the process server to act as a levying officer and requires process servers to have a “surety bond” of $10,000 per individual or $100,000 per firm. Process servers cannot levy on an amount in excess of their bond. Applicants must pass a written examination based on the Handbook for Process Servers, which is published by the Montana Department of Commerce.
