How to Domesticate an Out-of-State Subpoena in Mississippi

Understanding How to Domesticate an Out-of-State Subpoena in Mississippi:


A subpoena is a legal document or paper that commands or instructs an entity or individual to testify at a particular time or place. It can either be at a trial, hearing, or deposition. Subpoenas tend to have court-imposed deadlines making them time-sensitive.


In some circumstances, you can serve an individual living across state lines. If you live outside Mississippi, you can serve residents there. But you are required to domesticate the foreign subpoena.

Steps to Issue and Domesticate a Foreign Subpoena in Mississippi

Mississippi is among most U.S. states that have adopted the Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act (U.I.D.D.A.). The legislature passed SB 2264, which facilitated the adoption of U.I.D.D.A. Before adopting the Act, there was a vague procedure for taking discovery for foreign actions in Mississippi.


A party can adhere to the following steps as dictated by U.I.D.D.A.:

  • Submit the foreign subpoena to the Clerk of court. You must submit to the county court where discovery is sought in Mississippi.

  • As directed by U.I.D.D.A., the Clerk of the court should issue a subpoena for service to the person or entity it is directed to.

Types of Subpoenas Available for Domestication

  • Subpoena Duces Tecum: A subpoena requiring an individual or entity to produce relevant documents or records to a case.

  • Subpoena Ad Testification: A subpoena issued to an individual or entity requiring them to testify in the hearing.

  • Deposition Subpoena: A subpoena requiring an individual or entity to appear at a deposition to produce documents or testify
