Can a Private Investigator Act as a Process Server?

As a lawyer, you most likely know just how difficult it can be to serve an individual with legal papers of any kind. Often, when someone is served with legal papers, it either means it’s going to cost them time, money, or even legal repercussions, such as imprisonment. For this reason, it can be quite difficult to get a hold of a person to serve them papers. That said, with the right team in your corner, it doesn’t have to be impossible. Advanced Investigations can step in and help you. Please continue reading and reach out to our Connecticut professional process servers to learn more about how a process server from our team can assist you.

Why hire a private investigator to act as a process server instead of anyone else?

The two most common issues with serving people legal papers are a) locating them and b) dealing with them once they are located. When someone is expecting to be served papers, it’s not uncommon for them to seemingly drop off the face of the Earth. They may hide, behave sneakily, and otherwise avoid anyone who may be looking to serve them papers. For this reason, hiring law enforcement to serve someone papers may prove to be an issue, as law enforcement, with their uniforms, badges, and squad cars are typically not the most discreet. A private investigator, on the other hand, can look just like you or I and would be no reason for alarm if the individual saw one of our private investigators passing them on the street. Additionally, a private investigator is skilled at tracking people down and pinning their location so they can be served the papers.

You should also note that often, when someone is served papers, say for a civil complaint, they often quickly turn belligerent and are up in arms about the document. You don’t want to be there when this happens. A process server can get the job done and get out just as quickly. For these reasons, among others, if you need to serve someone papers, a private investigator is your best bet.
