Step 3: Service of process

The Marshals Division of the Superior Court of Guam will serve all orders of protection and “show cause orders” if the court requests it or if you request it. You or your attorney will have to provide detailed information on the whereabouts of the respondent. If the respondent is incarcerated, the court may ask you about the date of his/her arrest to pass that information along to the marshal.1

You cannot be charged a fee by a public agency for service of process.2

You can find more information about service of process in our Preparing for Court – By Yourself section, in the question called What is service of process and how do I accomplish it?
