Recently we were contacted to serve papers related to the death of a relative and the sale of the decedent's property. As part of the administration of the will and probate, proper notice had to be given to all parties involved. We attempted to serve the notice and were unable to contact anyone,let alone verify the address.

We were able to research property records, utilize our databases, utility records and other tools to determine that that the address in question was outdated. We then conducted research to locate and confirm the proper address and effect service. 

Lack of proper notice or the inability to verify facts may delay the case and impede the proper administration of the assets.

If you need assistance in locating an heir, contacting a relative or locating a missing person for a probate, estate or trust matter, please give us a call.
