How Process Servers Use Technology to Find People
It’s not always easy to get your case moving forward. In order for any court case to move forward, you have to be able to prove that the other party has been notified of the legal action against them. This is the purpose of private process servers. But what do you do when you can’t find the person that needs to be served? Luckily, private process servers have a number of tech tools at their disposal to find and serve individuals.
Private process servers were using GPS technology before most people had it on their phones. GPS saves process servers a lot of time because it allows them to make sure that they are in the right place at the right time. This means that you will get much faster and more accurate service of process.
You can learn a lot from someone’s social media accounts. If they have moved since you filed the legal action against them, their social media account might give clues such as their new city and state. Their social media profile might also list their place of employment. Even if they have their profile set to private, you can still learn about them by monitoring the more public profiles of friends and groups.
There really is an app for everything these days. There are several apps that private process servers can use to find people. They can also use mobile apps to help them identify people that need to be served or document the service. A good private process server will only use mobile apps that lead to a verified and legal service of process.
There are a lot of public records that you can use to find someone. Property tax records, arrest records, marriage licenses, legal cases, and other information can easily be found online or through inquiries through the court clerk or appropriate government office. Although these records are available to anyone, it helps to have a professional that knows how to work the system to get a search done as quickly as possible.
