Process server bonds, a type of license and permit bond, ensure process servers comply with industry rules and regulations. These surety bonds act as a legal contract between three parties: 

  1. The principal is the process server purchasing the bond. 
  2. The obligee is the government agency requiring the bond as part of the licensing process. 
  3. The surety is the provider issuing the bond and financially backing the principal. 

If the principal fails to conduct business according to the outlined terms, the bond protects harmed parties from financial loss up to the full bond amount.
