When an individual commits wrongdoing, their paperwork needs to be properly served in order for the court to have jurisdiction over them. As a result, many individuals who are in debt, committed assault, or worse may attempt to skip town. This is when having an experienced process server comes into play. Process servers use a method called skip tracing to find and physically hand individuals their paperwork, but what exactly is skip tracing?
Skip Tracing Fundamentals
Oftentimes, individuals leave behind clues after leaving an area. Uncovering these clues can require physical, database, and open-source research. As a result, process servers are able to piece together information to locate the individual who needs to be served their papers.
Process servers take advantage of any and all avenues that could lead them to their target. This includes:
- Social media posts
- Tax data
- Credit applications & reports
- Phone records
- Email tracing
- In-person accounts
- Travel history
By using specialized tools and techniques, the process server can compile enough information to pinpoint the most likely location of their objective.
