The service of process is a legal procedure that involves delivering documents to an individual or business. This is done to ensure that the recipient is aware of any legal proceedings and the documents they need to respond. However, there are times when someone may avoid service of process to delay or evade a court proceeding. In this blog post, we’ll explore how to identify someone who is avoiding the service of process.
The first step in identifying someone who may be avoiding the service of process is gathering information about the person you are attempting to serve. This includes their full name and any aliases, date of birth, home address, places they have lived in the past five years, place of employment, telephone numbers, email addresses, and social media accounts.
The next step is to take all this information and begin searching for the person you are trying to serve. You can do this by performing a public records search as well as by visiting their last known residence or workplace. If you come across any old contact information like an old phone number or address that could belong to them, use it in your search. Additionally, it helps to speak with people who know them such as family members and friends. They might be able to provide you with valuable information that can help you locate them.
Finally, if all else fails you can enlist a professional skip tracer to track down the person you are attempting to serve. Skip tracing involves using sophisticated investigative techniques such as data mining and online tracking tools to locate people who have gone off the grid or left no trace behind. A skip tracer can also look into financial records like bank accounts and credit card statements which can provide clues about where an individual has been recently or where they might be currently hiding out.
Identifying someone who may be avoiding the service of the process can be difficult but not impossible if done correctly. Gathering detailed information about the person you’re trying to serve is essential for any successful investigation into their whereabouts and should always be your first step when beginning your search. If all else fails then enlisting a professional skip tracer may be your only option for locating them so that you can effectuate service of process properly and on time!
