When Are Affidavits
It is important to note that
Affidavits of Due Diligence are not appropriate in every situation.
There are some cases where it may or may not be a good idea to avoid
using them. In addition, the exact form - including required details and
information - varies from state to state.
The conventional process service is
a critical component to legal proceedings, and failing to find or locate
a defendant could have severe legal and financial implications on the
parties involved. Before using or submitting an affidavit of due
diligence, a professional investigator and or process server will work
closely with an Attorney to make sure the diligence is proper and
They are responsible for falsified
information and inaccurate reports. This is why a Due Diligence search
and Affidavit are extremely important, and also why they hold such value
in legal proceedings.
What Happens When a Defendant
Cannot Be Served?
In the event that a defendant cannot
be served legal process in any capacity - most likely because they
cannot be found - a professional Private Investigation Agency and or
Licensed Private Process Server is absolutely crucial. Courts will only
accept credible means and documents. This is why the Due Diligence
affidavit must provide specific information proving Diligence efforts,
including search and inquiry.

Due diligence in a broad sense
refers to the level of research, judgment, determination, and
professional inquiry that a legal service provider would reasonably be
expected to provide during an investigation. In other words, before a
Diligent Search Affidavit can be finalized all information must be iron
clad, verifiable and indisputable. Once you have a Due Diligence
Affidavit there is no question as to what occurred or what was
discovered, itís all listed in a legally-binding document.
Due diligence services is a process of acquiring objective and reliable
information, generally on a person, subject, or directors of a company,
prior to a specific event or decision. It involves a systematic
investigative effort, comprised of gathering critical facts and
descriptive information. This information can then be used to make an
informed decision on a legal matter, before the courts.
An Affidavit of Due Diligence is made to attest to the investigative
efforts and services of a licensed person under a duty to make accurate
and proven efforts in a legal matter. It is most commonly drafted by a
process server who has unsuccessfully made attempts to personally serve
a defendant(s) with legal papers. The affidavit will set forth the
attempts made to serve the person, such as times and date of attempted
service, efforts to locate the person through neighbors, and much more.
The purpose of such an affidavit is to show the court that all legal
obligations to discharge a duty have been met, and possibly may justify
alternative measures, such as service by publication.
Rest assured, an Affidavit of Due
Diligence will be provided by a trustworthy and proven individual.
