Process servers now exempt from trespass charges

Michigan process servers are no longer considered “trespassers” when trying to serve documents.
Public Act 230, passed by the state Legislature and given immediate effect at the end of 2013, amended the Michigan Penal Code so it is no longer a 30-day misdemeanor to enter or remain on the premises of another without lawful authority after having been forbidden to do so or asked to leave by the owner, occupant, or their agents. 
PA 230 specifies that the trespassing prohibition and penalties do not apply to a process server who is on the land or premises of another while attempting to serve process.
