Process Serving Spanish Guide

One of the challenges process servers face is a language barrier for serving Hispanic individuals.  NCAPPS created a Spanish guide that contains a list of commonly used phrases in Spanish that you may use while serving.  Rosario Morales, a legal assistant in Charlotte interpreted the list for us and was a guest speaker at our recent annual meeting.  We think this list will be a very valuable tool to all servers!
