TPSA History Centered


History of the Texas Process Servers Association (TPSA)

TPSA is the oldest and largest state association in the country
  • Came together as one organization in 1999 when the North combined with the South

  • TPSA has worked relentlessly to improve our industry, by influencing the perception of Process Servers through legislation, while setting standards for Professionalism, Standards and Ethics

In 2005 TPSA helped create the certification program under the TX Supreme Court. 
  • The TX Supreme Court came to TPSA and said “How do we educate them?” So TPSA created the training program. Prior to that you could only serve papers under Rule 103. The judge in the county where papers were issued from had to appoint individuals to serve those papers; EVERY paper!!

We are sanctioned by the National Association of Professional Process Servers (NAPPS)
