The District Court Appointed Process Servers set their own pricing. Pricing may differ from Court to Court. Under Michigan Law the cost of service is set by statute but can be modified if agreed to in writing. By consenting to the Gouranger terms of service, you agree to pricing as set by the District Court Officer that may be higher than the statutory amount.

The total cost of an Order for Service will consist of a Service Fee per defendant, Mileage Fee, Print Fee and a Gouranger Administrative fee of 13%. Service Fees are set by Michigan Statue: MCL 600.2559. However, a process server may charge a separate price if agreed in writing. By agreeing to the terms and conditions of use of the Gouranger Platform, users agree in writing to that the Process Server may charge higher prices.  In nearly all cases, participating District Court Officers charge a low blended flat fee for Service that includes Mileage, plus print fees, which are close to the statutory service rates.

In most cases, District Court Process Servers are Court Officers appointed to serve documents out of the Court they serve by the Chief Judge of that Court. They are not employees of Gouranger. Gouranger is an independent platform used by District Court Court Officers to transact business with attorneys and other Court-Filers. Courts appoint Court Officers who meet the highest levels of professionalism in the industry.

Mi-File is the electronic filing system (e-filing) that the Supreme Court of Michigan has mandated all Michigan District Courts to implement. Filers use the Mi-File system to electronically open new cases and submit documents to Michigan Courts. Gouranger is NOT a part of the Mi-File system.  Gouranger runs parallel to the Mi-File system and provides an easy solution for filers to upload legal documents that are required to be hand-served to defendants and order process serving services from Court-Appointed District Court Process Servers.
