You don't need their address.

But you do need to have the served personally.

They can be served at work.

Does that answer your question?

when i fill out the court form i downloaded it asks for there info including address, i am going to hire a process server to have it delivered to avoid any issues with the papers being served

You have to say that the address is unknown and then you can say that the work address which is the address for service is: xxxxxxx
