An experience process server can do many things, but they still need a little help from their clients. When you hire a process server, you’ll need to give them a few items and information to help them do their job to the best of their ability. These items are as follows:
A recent photo of the subject
In order to properly identify the person being served, a process server will need to know what they look like. As such, providing them with a photo of the subject is crucial. Make sure it’s a recent photo, too, as people may look quite different if they’ve aged, changed their hair color, added tattoos, and more.
An alternative address
A process server will first go to an individual’s permanent address. However, there is always the chance that they may not be there. If there is another address they frequent (such as their workplace, a summer home, or a relative’s house), be sure to provide that to the process server.
A description of their vehicle
Another helpful way to identify an individual is to know what their vehicle looks like. If you have a description of their vehicle or (even better) a photo, this can help your process server locate the individual who needs to be served.
A driver’s license number
If a process server has access to someone’s driver’s license number, then a whole world opens up for them. They’ll be able to trace someone even if they’ve changed their name. While this may not be information that everyone has, if you do have it, be sure to give it to your process server.
