CIVIL LAWSUIT FOR A MISSING PERSON?
An evading defendant is something that you do not want to deal with because filing a civil court case is not a walk in the park. It takes a lot of time or years even. Most state laws require the evading defendant to receive court documents in person, to properly notify them. Unfortunately, some defendants prefer to avoid the responsibility of facing a process server. If this happens, hiring a process server is your ideal option for the plaintiff to go the after defendant.
THE POWER OF A PROCESS SERVER
A process server is an individual trained and authorized to perform Service of Process for the court system with critical responsibilities of providing legal documents to those being sued (see Recognizing Process Servers Significance). Aside from serving papers, process servers also play an important role in finding their subjects.
One of the services that process servers offer is skip tracing. This is basically locating a liable party that is in hiding with the intent to serve them legal papers. There are 2 ways of performing a skip trace:
- Using online resources. This involves going through the entire electronic database to find the most recent and related data to locate individuals. This process involves a great degree of accuracy searching for the defendant’s legal name, current address, birthday and much more.
- Asking. Another form skip tracing is Asking. The majority of the people related to the liable party who will be able to help the process server locate the person are relatives, friends, neighbors, office mates and acquaintances.
