Difficult Service of Process

West Front Investigations, LLC specializes in difficult services of process in California. Many of our clients come to us when other investigators and process servers have been unsuccessful in serving court documents. West Front Investigations, LLC utilizes a variety of investigative tools to ensure the successful delivery of court documents.

Expertise in Difficult Service of Process

Some individuals are easy to reach, while others can be challenging to contact, either intentionally or unintentionally. When the subject of your investigation becomes complex, you can greatly benefit from the expertise of a private investigator from West Front Investigations, LLC. We've encountered this issue many times: the address listed on the subpoena turned out to be incorrect, and no one had verified if the address was still valid.

In high-stakes cases where you anticipate the subject might be evasive or uncooperative, it's advisable to hire an investigator. RP will first create a well-thought-out plan based on thorough research before attempting to serve the subject. While cost is a factor to consider, sending an attorney to personally deliver a subpoena or other court documents by knocking on the door can ultimately end up being more expensive.

Challenges in Legal Service

In general, most people dislike being served with court documents, such as complaints, subpoenas, or restraining orders. Some individuals can be hard to locate or reach due to various circumstances, even if it's unintentional. Here are some common challenges that can arise during the legal service process:

Having accurate resident information.

The subject refusing to answer the front door or having someone else in their household claim they're not at home when they are.

Dealing with gated communities.

Handling apartment complexes with restricted access.

Dealing with subjects who frequently change their residence.

Our Approach

Before we attempt to serve any witnesses, we make sure to prepare by:

  • Obtaining the current address of the person's home and workplace.
  • Conducting Social Media Research to find out about the subject's recent activities.
  • Checking with the Department of Motor Vehicles to see if there are any vehicles registered in their name.

Once we have this information, before approaching the front door, we conduct surveillance to confirm that the subject is indeed at home or at their place of business. Whenever possible and depending on our clients' budget, we typically wait to personally see the subject before attempting service.

Importance of Difficult Service of Process

The importance of challenging service of legal documents lies in its potential to be frustrating and time-consuming. While evading legal service itself is not illegal, it can have significant consequences. Difficult service can hinder a high-stakes case, put someone's safety at risk, or disrupt the entire justice system.
