Due Dilligence – Locate


If you’re in need of a due diligence for service of process by publication, we can accommodate your request. All work is done by a licensed investigator. We exercise due diligence by making the necessary search requirements to locate the defendant per the methods available in the Code of Civil Procedure (CCP) 415.10 – 415.50.

A due diligence search is required for all courts. The search includes Registrar of Voters, real and personal property assessment rolls and telephone directories. Some courts also require a Department of Motor Vehicles search and a postal authorities search. This declaration must be done under the penalty of perjury.

In some situations, the court may require a due diligence declaration from the process server showing his attempts and the reasons for lack of service; such as the address for the defendant is not valid or the defendant is evading service.

Pre-Employment Background Checks


You already recognize the importance of hiring qualified responsible individuals to represent your organization. And, as great as it would be if you could just hire your mom, we understand that’s not a realistic option.

DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES

SOCIAL SECURITY TRACE
SOCIAL SECURITY TRACE: Verifies that the Social Security Number provided by applicant is a valid one issued by the Social Security Administration, and that the applicant is reporting this as his/her number. Also, may provide current or prior address information not listed on the application, as well as any other names the applicant may use. Could also reveal that the number is not reported as belonging to the applicant, and even if the number is reported as belonging to a deceased individual. This search will also provide any other names associated with the applicant’s social security number.
DRIVING RECORD
DRIVING RECORD: Department of Motor Vehicles’ report of traffic violations, convictions or accidents. This report will show drunk driving, reckless driving, outstanding traffic warrants, suspensions, penal code violations, probations and/or revocations. It may also reveal the applicant’s full name, as well as verify his/her date of birth and physical description. It may also reveal activity in other states when the California driver’s license has been surrendered to obtain a new one.
This search helps provide insight into the applicant’s ability to be responsible, identifies any alcohol or drug problems, determines whether the applicant failed to appear in court or neglected to pay fines, and determines if his/her license was suspended, restricted, or has expired. This search is extremely important when hiring an individual for a driving position. Failure to check driving records may result in negligent hiring litigation. The same risk exists if a position requires driving for company errands. An organization can be held liable for automobile accidents whether in a personal or company vehicle. The applicant’s full name, date of birth, driver’s license number, and the state of issue will ensure an accurate report.
MOTOR VEHICLE REGISTRATION
MOTOR VEHICLE REGISTRATION: Provides all vehicles currently registered to the applicant at a specific address.
WORKERS’ COMPENSATION HISTORY (Post Offer)
WORKERS’ COMPENSATION HISTORY (Post Offer): A search that provides a history of the employee’s work-related injuries that have been filed by past employers. This post-job offer allows our clients to rescind a conditional job offer under the strictest guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA, 1990). In some states, where information is no longer accessible for the past seven years, we will offer the best information possible.
CONSUMER CREDIT
CONSUMER CREDIT: This search provides insight into the applicant’s ability to be responsible, based on financial history. Since previous addresses and employment are part of the report, they can be cross-referenced with information provided by the applicant. Any aliases utilized by the applicant may also surface. The report indicates the applicant’s credit history as recorded in the files of national reporting agencies.
Of particular concern to the employer are residence addresses and prior employers which may be reflected in this report, but not listed by the applicant. Financial difficulties would also be uncovered.
Please note, an authorization (signature) from the applicant is required, including his/her full name (including Sr., Jr., I, II, III, etc.), social security number, and current address, including zip code.
CIVIL COURT RECORDS
CIVIL COURT RECORDS: A search, by county or district, at the Municipal, Superior or Federal court levels for lawsuits filed by or against the applicant (plaintiff or defendant). These lawsuits can sometimes reveal information regarding the applicant’s past activities and business ethics, wrongful discharge suits against former employers, breach of contracts, etc.
In this day and age of wrongful termination, discrimination, and sexual harassment litigation, this search is recommended to uncover a history of fraudulent lawsuits. Please provide the applicant’s full name, any aliases utilized, and areas where the applicant resided, worked, or attended school as an adult.
