Kinsey Investigations Process Service - A hand from an unseen person rings a doorbell.

Why You Should Hire a Professional for Process Service

You might not think of using a California private investigator for process service of your legal documents in a lawsuit; however, most Los Angeles private detective agencies do offer process service in addition to their private investigations services. While the state of California only requires that the person serving documents in a civil case be someone 18 years of age or older who is not named in the lawsuit, hiring a professional process server or private investigations firm licensed in California can help you avoid a number of pitfalls. Defendants who are difficult to locate, specifications around the information that must be disclosed at the time of the documents’ delivery, and the potential for some people to become angry and aggressive when they find out they’re being served are just a few examples. At Kinsey Investigations our female private investigators have an outstanding track record for locating defendants in our clients’ cases. We know and understand the disclosures required by law for the process service to be legal and complete in the eyes of the California justice system, and we have the experience and confidence to handle any sort of reaction from someone who’s just been served court papers. Don’t run the risk of delaying your case or even worse outcomes. Hire Kinsey Investigations for process service of your legal documents.

Kinsey Investigations Civil Litigation Support

Private Investigator Supporting Civil Litigation in California

Los Angeles private detectives know the difference between civil and criminal legal cases, but if you’re not private investigator and not employed in a law or law enforcement career, you may not understand what separates these two very different types of legal proceedings. Criminal charges, litigation and penalties refer to cases brought against an individual, business, etc. by a government entity, whether state, federal or another municipal body. Civil cases, on the other hand, are instead initiated by individuals, businesses or other non-government entities, and the process of filing and bringing the suit falls entirely to that filing party and any legal counsel they choose to retain. You can read more information about the differences in our previous post. Process service, often facilitated by a licensed process server is one of the first steps in civil litigation, and many individuals hire California private investigation firms to take care of this important legal requirement. If you are planning to file a civil case, deciding to work with a private investigator, usually in addition to legal counsel, can prove very valuable to your case. Kinsey Investigations is a private investigation firm licensed and insured throughout California, with decades of experience providing services and support for civil cases. Beginning with process service and transitioning into civil litigation support, we can help our clients take the required legal steps to go to trial as well as gather and review evidence that strengthens their case.
