In Arkansas, people who qualify as process servers have been appointed by the court in the district in which process service is going to be made. People who want to become process servers must submit an application and an affidavit to the court and must be appointed by the administrative judge or by a judge of a circuit court designated by the administrative judge.

Arkansas process servers must demonstrate familiarity with the papers to be served. They must also be prepared to show identification, a certified copy of the order of appointment, and a valid Arkansas driver’s license. When requested during service of process, the Arkansas process server must show this identification.
