Process serving is often routine, but there can be problems that develop. When this happens, you are likely to need the help a private investigator. The following are a few of these situations.

When You Believe the Person Has Left Town

You might have reason to believe that the person you want to serve has left town. They may have even left the state. This is an immediate problem that requires the attention of a private investigator. We have tools at our disposal to locate people in other areas of the state and even across state lines.

You Don’t Have a Current Address For the Person

If the last known address of the person you want to serve is no longer any good, and you have no forwarding address, you may wonder about the next step. At this point, you need to hire a private investigator.

One of the services that we provide is locating individuals. People often move without leaving little, or any, information behind about their new residence. This does not necessarily mean they are hiding; it is only a matter of finding their new address.

You Believe an Individual is Evading Subpoena Servicing

If a routine process service has been attempted more than once, you may be dealing with someone who is evading being served. People think that if they don’t answer their door, then they can’t be served. But for a private investigator this difficult service of process is a problem that is handled all of the time.

We have techniques that can get a person to the door and the document in their hands. Once you get to the point where it becomes clear that a person is attempting to hide from a process server, it is time to call a professional private investigator.

You Can’t Serve Them At Their Place of Work

You may not know exactly where a person is living because they are staying with a friend or otherwise have no address, but you are confident that you know their place of employment. However, serving papers at a workplace can be difficult. There are laws regarding the workplace, and often trespassing on private property can be an issue. If you know where someone works, a private investigator has the experience to serve court documents and do so legally.

The above situations only represent of few of the most common examples of how the assistance of a private investigator can help you. Our firm is ready to help with the subpoena servicing process, so there is no need to waste valuable time attempting to do the work yourself. Give us a call, and let us know your problem with serving court documents. We can explain how our services can help you in your particular circumstance.
