We have been serving process since 1970. Our experience is your solution.
Most process serving companies take up to 3 days before making their first service attempt. Our name, Same Day Process Service, means that we attempt service on the same day we receive papers if received by noon.
All of our servers use Android phones and a custom software application to record service of all legal documents. At the time of completed service, our servers open the job assigned to them from their phone, record the service information, take a photo of the location, and the GPS latitude and longitude are recorded. Those records are immediately transmitted to the office where the client is notified by email or phone and the affidavit is prepared for the servers signature and immediate return to the client.
Our servers are also private investigators. We utilize a varied skill set when serving documents. When the person we are trying to serve is not home, we put a small marker in the door to determine whether or not anyone is exiting or entering; we record information on vehicles in the driveway or parked in front of the house; we often carry a box to the neighbors and pretend that we have a delivery for the subject, which usually provides us with good information as to the best time to catch the subject and whether or not they still live there.
We could write a book on our numerous methods for attempting service and you can find many of those stories on our website and on YouTube (just enter Same Day Process Service on YouTube).
