The Most Common Types Of Police Reports That Are Helpful For Process Servers, Private Investigators and Attorneys

Posted by Christine Burke on Sunday, September 23, 2018, In : process server 


Are you trying to find someone or some thing?

Do you feel that the facts just don't make sense or something is being left out?

Are you getting the, "I don't have to talk to you" or "Show me a subpoena" from officers or other officials involved in the case?

Many times the, "devil" IS in the details, as the popular saying goes, no matter what color hat you are wearing :)

So much information can be gained from various reports and documentary sources - you just need to know what to look for and how t...

Posted by Christine Burke on Saturday, July 22, 2017, In : Process Serving 


If you have thought about a career in the legal field, or better yet, owning your own business, consider becoming a process server.

A process server is a private party, contracted by companies and individuals, who serves court papers (formally known as legal process) as required by the courts to parties involved in the proceedings.

Marketing Your Private Investigator or Process Server Business

Posted by Christine Burke on Thursday, February 16, 2017, In : Private Investigator and Process Server Marketing 


These are the stats from one of my sales channels for January 2017. You can see (hopefully) that 20% of total sales came from a mobile device and new buyers make up 93% of total shoppers.

What does this mean for you? If you do not have a website or your website is not mobile optimized, you might be missing out on 20% of your customers. Too, did you know that Google has been rumored to down rank sites that are not mobile optimized?

And, how would you like to get 93% more new clients each month? ...

What Happens If It Isn't Served In Time?

Posted by Christine Burke on Thursday, May 28, 2015, In : Process Serving 


Well, it could be a BIT more than a parking ticket.....you could lose important evidence in your case, or if worse comes to worst, have your case dismissed!

Just yesterday, I had conversations with an attorney and one a business owner. Both were complaining about other process serving firms who were late with serving documents and delivering critical case documents. It's unfortunate that I hear this foo often lately....well, not unfortunate for me because I now have two NEW clients.

What's The Alternative?

Posted by Christine Burke on Friday, February 20, 2015, In : Process Serving 


I was recently discussing serving papers with a client and they asked, "What happens if you don't serve them the first time?" I was happy to say that we usually get our serves on the first attempt :) but when someone is evading there are other means of Alternate Service of Process.

When there are problems serving, such as being unable to locate the party or when the party is evading service, the court can allow other methods for alternate service. The process server, when there is an unsuccess...

Locating People To Serve Papers

Posted by Christine Burke on Friday, January 23, 2015, In : Missing Persons and Locates 


Frequently we get calls such as, "I need to serve someone but I don't know where they are" or "I need to serve someone but I don't know their exact name". Don't give up on what you need to do, get help from an experienced investigator so you can find the person.

We recently assisted two clients who needed to locate someone to serve papers. In one case, it was an estranged spouse and they were unsure where the party was located. We were able to conduct a database search (which can be quick an i...

Process Serving: Number of Attempts Needed

Posted by Christine Burke on Monday, January 19, 2015, In : Process Serving 
I recently took a call from a potential customer. They were looking for a process server. They were in Apache Junction AZ and wanted IMMEDIATE service of process for a divorce in Scottsdale AZ. They asked the price, which I quoted at our standard rate, providing three attempts.

The customer appeared to be taken aback, asking "Only three? The other company offered five!" My response to that was that any good process server should make the service on the first attempt, negating the need for the ...
