What Methods Do Process Servers Use to Find Evasive Subjects?

Serving Court Documents

If you want to take legal action against someone, you are required by law to ensure that they are notified of the charges brought against them. This isn’t always easy when subjects evade unknown persons who attempt to approach them, especially if they’re expecting to be sued and know that someone is actively trying to serve them their court documents. When a soon-to-be defendant is extremely evasive, turning to a process server who can employ a variety of effective tools for serving court documents is the best way to ensure that you can began to take swift legal action.

Sometimes, process servers conduct lengthy stakeouts to familiarize themselves with the subject’s daily routine. Understanding the pattern of the subject makes serving them much easier than attempting to catch them by chance. While process servers often use stakeouts as an information gathering tool, they can often present a window of opportunity for the server to make contact with their target.

In addition to stakeouts, process servers will frequently pose as delivery persons and attempt to make a flower or pizza delivery in order to come in contact with the subject. Skilled and experienced process servers also use other very creative ways to approach a subject, but stating them explicitly might make existing strategies ineffective. Simply put, surveillance measures, delivery attempts, and other steps are taken to locate and serve the subject in question.

Whether the person you plan to sue lives in Washington D.C., Maryland, or Virginia, or they’ve fled to the opposite side of the country, Same Day Process Service is the clear choice when you need to serve a subject who is trying very hard to remain aloof. Our interview process is fairly lengthy because we want to gather as much information as possible about the subject.
