International Service of Process, by either method, is ruled by two different legal systems, linked by the treaty of the Hague. The main law, called « Lex Fori, » is the law where the documents are issue and where judgment takes place, "Lex fori forum". These rules, govern service of process validity and recognition in the "lex fori forum", but not necessarily its effects and legality in the jurisdiction where documents where served, "Lex loci". Recognition and enforcement by the "Lex loci forum" depend on the respect for internal laws of civil procedure and the procedure of "exequatur" It is then to each "lex fori" and their "foum" to determine their requirements for an "acceptable service" but being their powers limited in space they can not enforce it abroad, so necessarily need to keep in mind that: The act of notification is completed under a different legal system with different exigences, those of a sovereign state which must be taken in consideration, based buy fake passport on International treaties and for future enforcement. Based on International Legal Principles, we can affirm that a "Lex fori forum" can not accept in a procedure a "foreign illegal procedural actuation", an act that violates foreign laws.Oon the other hand the "Lex Loci forum" will not enforce a judgment obtained under these circumstances in. Because of this, you must act in harmony with local codes of procedure and the Hague Convention and not only with your own laws,.or, your liability will be engaged in a Criminal or Civil manner.
The Centralized method seems to be the most appropriate and reliable, but it is not, is not mandatory nor exclusive, as explained by the Hague Convention itself (visit the Department of State's1 web pages for more information). Therefore the "Central Authority" is not the only organ proposed as available to serve documents abroad as is the general believe or as promoted by many translation companies or unscrupulous servers who have created a :"Vox Populi" that takes advantage of ignorance of the treaty, to sell Translations and Apostilles.
