Effecting service of process in Brazil is a lesson in perseverance. Service of process pursuant to the Inter-American Convention on Letters Rogatory and Additional Protocol upon defendants located in Brazil takes at least a year and sometimes two or more. Just prepping the documents properly to meet Brazil’s arduous legalization and procedural requirements can take several months.
