Affidavit of Due Diligence
An Affidavit of Due Diligence is a sworn statement;
a person can be found guilty of perjury if she / he submits a false,
inaccurate or misleading statement
in a Due Diligence Affidavit. 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.
When a defendant cannot be served legal
process in any capacity due to not being found the services of a
professional Private Investigation Agency and or Licensed Private Process Servers

affidavit must provide specific and broad information that proves
Diligence efforts, search and inquiry.
Our Due Diligence administrative services offer an credible and for Court
Affidavit of Due Diligent Inquiry and Search to
Attorneys seeking an alternate means for service process. Due diligence
in a broad sense refers to the level of research, judgment,
determination, and professional inquiries that a legal service provider
would reasonably be expected to do under particular circumstances. In
other words, before a diligent search affidavit can be finalized
provided must be iron clad, verifiable and indisputable.
Due diligence services is a process of acquiring objective and reliable
information, generally on a person, directors of a company, prior to a
specific event or decision. It is usually a systematic investigative
effort, which is used to gather the critical facts and descriptive
information which are most relevant to the making of an informed
decision on a 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 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
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.
Due Diligence - A Private Investigators Expertise is different than that
of others such as Accountants, Lawyers and Consultants.
Due diligence is a program of critical
analysis that companies undertake prior to making business decisions in
such areas as corporate mergers/acquisitions or major product
purchases/sales. The due diligence process, whether outsourced or
executed in-house, is in essence an attempt to provide Attorneys and
Judges with reliable and complete background information about a
defendant who cannot be found or served by typical or traditional means.
Many investigate experts caution that
the due diligence process is incomplete if it does not incorporate at
least ten crucial
elements of a critical check list. The check list is not written in
stone nor is it statutory. The list is at the discretion of the
professional and is drafted as a means to show the extent of efforts
placed on trying to ascertain the whereabouts of a person.

DUE DILIGENT SEARCH AFFIDAVIT
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
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.

The steps taken must show that "an honest and conscientious effort,
reasonably appropriate to the circumstances" was taken. Gans v.
