How Process Servers Use Skip Tracing

There are many tactics that process servers use for skip tracing, and they are largely dependent on databases that contain detailed information about people in both the private and public sectors. This information is analyzed and cross-referenced for verification in order to prevent process servers from following a trail that leads to a dead end. When looking for an individual, process servers use databases to gather countless pieces of information, such as:

  • Phone numbers
  • Credit reports
  • credit card and applications
  • Job applications
  • Utility bills
  • Tax information
  • Vehicle Sightings - License Plate Recognition Data
  • License Place Search

Even if none of the information gathered leads a process server to the person they’re looking for, there are other databases that give them information about people associated with the individual, which they can then use to gather additional clues that point them in the right direction. While this was a long and drawn-out task in years past, today’s technology enables process servers to gather this information and act on it quickly.
