The Hague Convention on the Service Abroad of Judicial and Extrajudicial Documents, the largest multilateral treaty governing service of process abroad, came into force for the United States on Feb. 10, 1969. The United States and 54 other countries are signatories to this convention. The Hague Convention was established in 1965 in order to create an avenue for service of process without the need to bring consular or diplomatic channels into the equation. This reduces the amount of time it takes for process to be effectuated (generally 3-6 months).
