An Affidavit of Due Diligence is often submitted by a Private process server stating the efforts he / she made to find and deliver legal documents to the subject defendant (s). Due diligence in process serving generally means that the process server tried extensively to locate an individual by accessing information discoverable through diligent efforts, search and inquiry as referenced in our check list.

Some Possible Issues
Affidavits of due diligence are not appropriate in every situation, and the exact form may vary by state. Service of process 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 comprehensive.

An affidavit of due diligence is made to attest to the investigative efforts and services of a licensed person under a duty to make diligent efforts in a legal matter. It is most commonly drafted by a process server who has unsuccessfully made attempts to personally serve another 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.

Before commencing service by publication, the plaintiff, his agent or attorney must file a sworn statement of diligent search. There are four types of diligent search affidavits, one for each of the following types of defendants:

1. Natural Persons

2. Corporations

3. Unknown Parties

4. Parties Doing Business Under a Corporate Name

Keep in mind the following:
The examiner must carefully compare any diligent search affidavit. Any omission or material inaccuracies could make the service invalid.

The word "address" is not synonymous with the word "residence". Where the Due Diligence Affidavit makes a statement as to the "residence" of the defendant, service is defective if the word "address" is substituted. Callaghan v. Callaghan, 337 So.2d 986 (Fla. 4th D.C.A. 1976).

The steps taken must show that "an honest and conscientious effort, reasonably appropriate to the circumstances" was taken. Gans v. Heathgate-Sunflower Homeowner's Association, 593 So.2d. 549 (Fla. 4th D.C.A. 1992); Klinger v. Milton Holding Co., 136 Fla. 68, 186 So. 526 (Fla. 1939).

Within 60 days of the filing of the due diligent search affidavit, the clerk or judge shall issue a notice of action in the form set forth in Section 49.08, F.S. The notice of action shall require the defendant to file an answer and serve a copy not later than the date set forth in said notice. The referenced date shall not be less than 28 nor more than 60 days after the first publication.
