One of the most important things that you as the client can do for your process server is to provide the best information possible to locate the individual they will be serving. Accurate and thorough information regarding the document recipient can help expedite service and save money.
There are many details that can assist your process server aside from a current residential address.
Firstly, your process server should know what the person they are serving looks like. A written description is helpful. A photograph even more so. Often, evasive individuals will deny that they are the recipient the documents are intended for. A solid photograph may clear up any confusion and allow your process server to complete the job at hand.
Is there any other information you have that may help pin down a location?
If there are possible alternative addresses these would be incredibly helpful to your process server. When a first address proves a dead end it can be invaluable for your process server to have other options ready to go. Where does the recipient work? Does the recipient frequent certain establishments or spend a lot of time with certain friends?
Descriptions of regular routines can also be helpful. Does the recipient work long days and is only home on certain evenings? Do they have a regular night out with friends? Are they at the same coffee shop every morning between 8:30 am and 9:00 am? These are the details that can make a huge difference in the time spent locating an individual.
Do you have information about the vehicle or vehicles the recipient may be using? A license plate number may come in handy when using certain databases that we have access to. Is it possible that the recipient may be using the vehicle of a family member or a close friend?
Ultimately, the more information your process server has the better it is for everyone. His job is simplified and you are able to keep your costs down.
