Due Diligence Locate Search for Service of Process by Publication

If you’re in need of a California due diligence locate for service of process by publication, we can accommodate your request. All work is done by a licensed investigator. We exercise due diligence by making the necessary search requirements to locate the defendant per the methods available in the Code of Civil Procedure (CCP) 415.10 – 415.50.

A California due diligence locate search is required for all courts. The search includes Registrar of Voters, real and personal property assessment rolls and telephone directories. Some courts also require a Department of Motor Vehicles search and a postal authorities search. This declaration must be done under the penalty of perjury.

In some situations, the court may require a due diligence declaration from the process server, private investigator, or private detective showing his attempts and the reasons for lack of service; such as the address for the defendant is not valid or the defendant is evading service.
