I'm trying to locate certain defendants to serve process to.

Customer Question

I'm trying to locate certain defendants to serve process to. I suspect they reside in either NY/NJ. They drive vehicles. Can anyone suggest a good or affordable process server that can also find the address and location of people? Are there effective online
search engines to use as well? I heard of something like spokeo before. Are there any other search engines? Thanks in advance.

What state are you located in? Did you already try spokeo? Do you have the last know addresses for the defendants?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I'm in New York. My experience with spokeo is that it usually list multiple addresses and its hard for me to tell which ones current. I'm not sure if the last address listed is accurate but would it help that this person just got married and I know the name of the spouse?
Expert:  Maverick replied 2 years ago.
Yes, that should help and then you can cross reference the spokeo addresses for both. Here are some other sites that may help: I have used the third one myself with some success. By the way save all the proof of your attempt to find them and serve them. Later on, you may be able to get permission from the court to serve them by publication in the news paper if all else fails.Please remember to assign a feedback rating so JA will compensate me for my time.
