Difficult Process Service
Our private detective agency has successfully handled hundreds of difficult process service cases including subpoenas, summons, restraining orders, tenant evictions, foreclosures, and a host of other writs.
A cause of action filed in the courts cannot proceed until the parties are properly served. There are deadlines in which proper service must be effectuated to avoid re-filing.
Oftentimes, a defendant or respondent will deliberately avoid the service to avoid obvious consequences. In fact, the process server will return it unserved after three attempts. When this occurs, it interferes with the normal course of legal procedure.
Difficult process service is something we specialize in. When we are charged with the task of serving someone where others have failed, it is a rare occasion where our detectives do not get their mark.
Our private investigators will conduct background checks when necessary, search social media accounts, and even talk to neighbors and relatives, all of which help us to narrow down the best time and place to serve the subject. Often, the process service requires surveillance or an elaborate ruse to lure the subject out in the open. No matter the methods, we document the service with either photos or video, along with a sworn proof of service. See some real-life examples below.
Investigation fees are based on time and complexity. We charge a minimum of 5 hours, with most cases being able to be completed in that amount of time. However, there are circumstances where it could cost more, especially if we have to secure a current address and/or place of employment.
