What happens when a process server cannot find the person being served? That depends on who your process server is. Not every process server has the knowledge and skills necessary to find the party to be served. ASAP Serve uses skiptracing to track down those being served in a timely and efficient manner.
Skiptracing is a way to locate people who have “skipped town” (hence the name). Sometimes people may be missing inadvertently or may deliberately be hiding. Process servers engaging in skiptracing will use a variety of methods—from high tech computer software to simple phone call and stakeout— to find a missing person. There are even web sites available, which can aid in skiptracing, like skipease.com and skip-tips.com. Moreover, even social networking sites can be useful for skiptracing.
Although the internet is making it easier for anyone to skiptrace, if you need to find someone fast, a process server is the way to go. Because ASAP process servers are so experienced, we can successfully complete a skiptrace in a fraction of the time it would take the average person or even a beginning process server. Another factor to consider is the legality of what is being done. A skiptracer needs to make sure that everything they are doing is legal and will not be grounds for a mistrial later on. A qualified, experienced process server will know what the legal boundaries are and how to find someone without breaking the law.
