SERVICE OF PROCESS

A bailiff must be engaged

What is the procedure for the service of foreign proceedings under the procedural laws of Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, St. Maarten, St. Eustatius and Saba for a company having its registered address in one of those territories, for instance Curaçao?

Under Curaçao procedural law, the service of proceedings on a Curaçao legal person will be done by means of a bailiff’s notification. This notification shall be served (i) on the person or residence of the president of the management board of the company or (ii) on the business and/or registered address of the company.

Curaçao procedural law does not provide for the possibility to serve the proceedings on the address of the company’s lawyer.
