The process of locating a person to serve legal documents is known as skip tracing. Far too often people will attempt to evade being served legal documents in order to avoid the courts. Some people are quite adept at keeping themselves under the radar. Uncooperative recipients can be a hassle, and without a process server in New Jersey that is skilled at locating them, may delay court proceedings.
A skilled and experienced process server has access to tools and resources that make skip tracing to locate elusive recipients much easier. Addresses for home and work, phone numbers, ID or driver’s license numbers, social security numbers, frequented businesses, etc., are all there. Nearly every person in this day and age leaves behind a digital footprint that can be used to track them down through deep internet searches. Your process server will likely have access to databases that are not necessarily available to the general public as well.
Using what can be found with deep internet searches, a skilled process server can then move on to more hands-on approaches to finding the recipient. Family, friends, coworkers, and other known associates can be interviewed to ascertain a location, though they may not always be dependable. Canvassing locations the recipient is known to frequent can often bring in information about routines, or a lack thereof. Surveillance outside possibly frequented residences or businesses can be helpful in locating particularly difficult recipients.
Difficult to locate legal document recipients can slow down court proceedings with costly delays. The best way to get documents into the hands of an elusive recipient will always be to hire a skilled, professional process server.
