You will want to find a local process server to get this information - ask them to run a "skip trace" on your defendant - they can get this information (and generally much more - such as place of work, and potentially other helpful information such as vehicle registration, etc.).
I would also recommend paying the process server to actually serve your summons and complaint for you (process servers do this as a profession, know the service statutes, and are able to provide you with a proof of service that is unlikely to be challenged later), but you do not have to - they will run the "skip search" alone if you prefer.
(Some attorneys do pay for subscriptions for the proprietary databases that are used for skip searches - primarily those that deal with debt collection type suits - but you would need to find a local attorney for this kind of specific legal service - our forum is a "general legal information" forum only).
These types of services should be offered by local process servers - but if you have found an expert on this forum willing to offer this kind of information, I will certainly "opt out" and allow another expert to follow up with you.
Please do not post any further at this time as it will delay the next expert's ability to follow up.
If you need any assistance in the meantime, please contact our customer service at: http://ww2.justanswer.com/help
Thank you for using our forum, and I do wish you the best of luck.
Hi, My name is ***** ***** I am another Attorney here on JustAnswer. I see that the previous expert opted out of your question. In Anser to your question, JustAnswer does not permit us to take on customers as clients and the only services that are permitted are through this website. In order to do a background check on this individual, you would need some of his personal information such as his social security number and date of birth. If you are suing this individual and he is the Defendant, you should not attempt to serve him because the Rules of Civl Procedure in most states do not permit a Plaintiff to serve the Defendant. So, even if you served him, the Court would rule that the service on the Defendant was invalid. In that regard, I must agree with the previous expert's suggestion that you get a Licensed Process Server to serve this individual. Once the Process Server serves the Defendant, make sure that he gives you an "Affidavit of Service" which should name the individual he served, the address where he served the Defendant, and include a brief description of the Defendant. He will sign the Affidavit and have his signature notarized. He will then giv you the Affidavit of Service so that you can file it with the Clerk of the Court where the lawsuit is pending and the Affidavit becomes part of the Court's record on the case.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED CLARIFICATION ON ANYTHING AND I WILL BE GLAD TO EXPLAIN FURTHER
IF I HAVE ANSWERED YOUR QUESTION, PLEASE BE KIND ENOUGH TO LEAVE A POSITIVE RATING SO THAT JUSTANSWER WILL GIVE ME CREDIT FOR ASSISTING YOU. THIS DOES NOT COST ANYTHING ADDITIONAL AND IT IS THE ONLY WAY THAT JUSTANSWER KNOWS THAT I HAVE ASSISTED YOU,
I have no problem opting out of your question. However, the service you are requesting has never been a service which JustAnswser provides. If the expert you are referring to provided or provides this information to you, he (or she) would be violating JustAnswer’s rules, with or without any additional payment.
If you need the defendant’s asset information with regard to what, if any real property he owns, you can call any reputable title insurance company and they will do a search on the defendant and furnish you with this information, but they do not supply any financial asset information. The normal manner of finding out a defendant’s asset information regarding bank accounts, stock portfolio information and similar financial information, is by taking the defendant’s deposition under oath at which time he would have to furnish this information to you, or be held in contempt of Court. However, this is only permitted after a plaintiff has won a judgment against a defendant, never at the outset of a lawsuit and certainly not before the conclusion of the case and plaintiff is awarded a monetary judgment against the defendant.
I wish you the best of luck and very happy and safe holidays,
PS You might want to contact Customer Service and ask for the names of all experts who are assigned to the "fraud examiner' category. That might help you remember the expert's name. You can also ask Customer Service how you can access all of your past questions, that would help you with determining the name of the expert you are looking for. It might be helpful to know the name of the expert you are looking for. Then, you could edit your question by typing the name of the expert at the very beginning of your question, and saying something like the following -
"For (Name of expert) only" This way you will not have other experts continuously asking you if you need any assistance,
My statements are supported by JustAnswer's Terms of Service which govern the actions of each expert who provides a service to any JustAnswer customer. My replies to you do not prevent any other expert from assisting you.
I wish you the best of luck and happy and safe holidays,
